The Indiana Department of Transportation announces U.S. 6 lane restrictions are scheduled to begin Friday near SR 15 in Elkhart County.
Work is slated to being in the morning on U.S. 6 over the Kiefer Ditch, which is located between CR 25 and CR 127, approximately 2 miles east of SR 15. Traffic will be intermittently restricted to one lane in alternating directions, controlled by flaggers, as a temporary runaround is constructed on the south side of U.S. 6.
The runaround will be used during replacement of the Kiefer Ditchsmall structure, for which construction is scheduled to begin in spring of 2013.
INDOT reminds drivers that intermittent lane restrictions between SR 13 and CR 43, near the Elkhart and Noble counties line, continue as a runaround on the north side of U.S. 6 is built for use during replacement of the Blue Ditch small structure in that location.
The intermittent lane restrictions for runaround construction at both locations are expected to be complete by Nov. 22, 2012.
