The Herald Bulletin

ANDERSON, Ind. — The Indiana Department of Transportation has confirmed the award of an  $1,149,500 contract to re-deck and refurbish a Madison County bridge west of Anderson.

Schutt-Lookabill Company of Indianapolis submitted the lowest of five bids.

This Local Public Agency (LPA) project at C.R. 600 West over White River is sponsored by Madison County—with 80 percent funding coming from the Federal Highway Administration.  INDOT administers the FHWA funds.

Schutt-Lookabill crews will remove and replace the bridge deck, install new bridge rails and perform other repairs—including replacement of several steel beams within the superstructure.

The contract allows a 120-day closure of County Road 600W.

The bridge and roadway should reopen by the end of September.
