Drivers will see better better driving conditions along State Road 257 in Pike and Daviess Counties after potholes are patched on the roadway.
The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) released information Thursday saying the work will begin this week, but the patches will not be the end of work.
“This repair is not the final fix for the roadway. As weather and materials allow, INDOT will then mill off the top layer of the roadway and re-seal the roadway,” according to a press release issued by INDOT Media Relations Director Cher Elliott.
The work is expected to be complete by October.
The press release explains the extreme winter conditions caused potholes on the roadways, and maintenance crews began patching the road near SR 356 and moved north towards the US 50 Bypass.
“INDOT reminds motorists to follow the posted work zone speed limit, use caution and consider worker safety when traveling through a work zone,” the press release notes.
