Closure planned for State Road 18

The Indiana Department of Transportation says that a “small structure replacement” is scheduled for State Road 18 over Honey Creek in Miami County. The roadway is expected to close on or after Wednesday, June 12, weather permitting.

The closure, which will allow contractors to replace a small drainage structure, is scheduled to take place between county roads S 500 E and S 600 E. Access to homes and businesses will be maintained throughout the work, a news release said.

The official state detour for the closure will be U.S. 31 to S.R. 218 to S.R. 19. The road may be closed up to 60 calendar days. State Road 218 in Miami County is expected to open the same day S.R. 18 closes.

Work on the S.R.18 bridge over Honey Creek is expected to continue through late August, weather permitting. The contract was awarded to 3D Company for $678,000.
