Verbatim: Bridge road work to close U.S. 6 in Noble County

The city of Kendallville issued the following news release today:

NOBLE COUNTY – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces that U.S. 6 in the community of Brimfield, located in Noble County, is scheduled to close on or after Monday, April 30, weather permitting.

The road will be closed between S.R. 9 (south junction) and C.R. N 175 E to allow contractors to tie in the newly aligned road with the new bridge. U.S. 6 will be closed for up to 90 days to allow for the work. The official state detour will be S.R. 9 to S.R. 8 to S.R. 3.

The new bridge has been built 100 feet west of the existing location, which has allowed contractors to keep U.S. 6 open throughout most of the work. The work eliminates access to U.S. 6 from C.R. 100 E, Railroad Street and Albion Street.

Work on the bridge is expected to be completed by late 2018, weather permitting. The contract was awarded to Primc o for $5 .1 million.
