Raatz: Road construction project to begin in Lynn

Contact: Lindsey Ross, Senior Press Secretary 

STATEHOUSE (March 19, 2019) – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) will begin a road construction project next week to improve U.S. Route 27 from the southern city limit to the northern city limit of Lynn, said State Sen. Jeff Raatz (R-Richmond).

The project, which is scheduled to begin Monday, March 25, will include deep-patch repair, asphalt milling and resurfacing, new curbing and small structure rehabilitation.

To make the necessary improvements, small sections of U.S. Route 27 will be closed for brief periods of time, but access to all businesses and residences, at least from one direction, will be maintained, according to INDOT.

“I am pleased INDOT is making these necessary road improvements in our area, as the result will have a positive impact on our community,” Raatz said. “I encourage residents to be patient while the project is underway and to drive carefully when in the construction zone.”

Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed by mid-summer.

Raatz encourages residents of Senate District 27 to contact his office at 800-382-9467 with any questions or concerns regarding the project.
