Huntsville Road Bridge closed Tuesday

PENDLETON — Huntsville Road is scheduled to close Tuesday for rehabilitation of the 1940s steel truss bridge at Fall Creek, located just west of Indiana 67 between Pendleton and Huntsville. Detour signs are posted.

The contract calls for cleaning, painting and repairing the existing 119-foot steel structure, installing several new cross members and replacing the bridge deck.

The contract completion date is March 31, allowing time for landscaping and tree planting. Current plans are to reopen the bridge for wintertime traffic. Should conditions allow, these plans could change.
