INDOT to close State Road 161 for culvert replacement project in Spencer Co.


SPENCER COUNTY, Ind. (WEHT) – A Spencer County road will be closed for nearly a month for a culvert replacement project.

Crews will close State Road 161, near Richland City beginning June 17th.

State Road 161 will be closed from about a mile north of SR 66 between County Road 200 and County Road 300 to replace a culvert on Tower Ditch.

Crews will excavate and replace a large culvert across SR 161.

During the work, local traffic will have access up to the point of closure, but thru traffic will have to detour, using SR 66, SR 61 and SR 62.

Work is expected to take until mid-July, pending inclement weather.
