Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Rieth-Riley Construction Co. will be closing State Road 18 at the intersection with U.S. 35 overnight later this month after work was pushed back one week as part of the resurfacing project on U.S. 35 through Galveston.
State Road 18 will be closed between Woodlawn St and Sycamore St from approximately 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Friday, June 24 to Saturday, June 25 and possibly again from approximately 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Saturday, June 25 to Sunday, June 26. These closures are for deep patching in the U.S. 35 and State Road 18 intersection. The official detour will follow U.S. 31, State Road 218 and State Road 29.
Resurfacing work on U.S. 35 between State Road 18 and South Fork Deer Creek will be ongoing through mid-July, with flaggers directing traffic in the area where work is occurring.
INDOT encourages drivers to allow extra time when driving through this area and follow traffic directions carefully. Motorists should slow down, exercise caution and drive distraction-free through all work zones.
