The State Road 49 Bridge, at the Porter/Jasper County line, near Kouts, is scheduled to possibly have some work done next year. INDOT spokesman Matt Deitchley says the deck of the bridge will be replaced so they can preserve the historical aspect of the truss bridge, which allows them to access federal funds. Deitchley says they are looking to put the project out for bid in early 2014.
Deitchley says the way bridge was constructed, doing one-side at a time is not an option and would take longer to finish construction, so it will have to be closed during the reconstruction, which is anticipated to last one construction season and expected to be reopened later in that year.
