INDOT has begun the resurfacing of SR 5 in Shipshewana. The limits of the project are from US 20 through Shipshewana to CR 450N. Work will be performed on Mondays and Thursdays. It may also occur on weekends.
Thru traffic will be permitted under the direction of flaggers, with single-lane traffic in alternating directions. Motorists should be aware of merging construction traffic and shoulder work. Work will not be performed on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays during daytime hours. Work will also not occur during the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
Brooks Construction was awarded the contract based on the low bid of $698,000. The project is scheduled for completion by late June.
