Lane shifting to begin on State Road 3 between Muncie and New Castle
Those who travel on State Road 3 will continue to notice construction zones until the fall.
E&B Paving will implement lane shifting on eight miles of highway between Muncie and New Castle throughout the summer as it begins concrete pavement overlays, according to an Indiana Department of Transportation press release.
According to INDOT, the concrete pavement overlay "strengthens road structure, improves friction, reduces noise and improves ride quality on aged sections of pavement."
Contractors will close the passing and left turn lanes of both northbound and southbound State Road 3 between County Road 200 North and County Road 950 North.
Traffic will be switched in June and restricted down to one lane in each direction during the lane reconstruction.
Some right-turn access to and from State Road 3 and left-turn access across the median may also be temporarily prohibited during this time.
The construction project is expected to be completed by early fall.
