WHITLEY COUNTY — State Road 9 is scheduled to be resurfaced on or after Monday, July 15, weather permitting, according to a news release by the Indiana Department of Transportation. The resurface work will take place between SR 14 and SR 205 in Huntington and Whitley counties.

During the day, drivers are cautioned to watch for lane restrictions and possible stopped traffic in the construction zone.

INDOT reminds drivers to use caution and consider worker safety when driving through any active work zone.

Work on this project also will include pipe repairs near the intersection of SR 9 and CR 400S. The work will result in the closure of CR 400S for up to seven days, weather permitting. Local detours will be posted in advance of the closure.

The project is expected to be completed by late October, weather permitting. The contract was awarded to INDOT contractor E&B Paving for $2.5 million and includes the resurface of SR 5 in Whitley County.
