Lutgring Brothers wins right to construct turn lanes, traffic signal

DUBOIS COUNTY – Construction will soon begin at a busy intersection in Dubois County. The Indiana Department of Transportation recently awarded a contract to improve the intersection of Indiana 64 and Indiana 162 in Bretzville.
Lutgring Brothers Inc. of Tell City was the low bidder on the $1 million contract, which adds dedicated left turn lanes for north- and south-bound traffic on Indiana 162 as well as a traffic signal.
Motorists can expect narrowed lanes on Indiana 162 as workers begin dirt work for the added lanes. Crews will also begin the installation of electrical lines for the new signals. The signal will be activated once the new turn lanes have been constructed and all pavement markings are in place. All work is anticipated to be complete on this project in October. Currently motorists must stop in all directions on both Indiana 162 and 64. The new signal will stay predominantly green for traffic on Indiana 64 and will be activated as motorists approach the intersection from Indiana 162.
INDOT encourages motorists to slow down and pay special attention as they become familiar with the new traffic patterns at this location. For the latest news and information about INDOT, visit www.in.gov/indot and www.trafficwise.in.gov.
