Crew getting S.R. 13 in Middlebury ready for resurfacing

Work on S.R. 13 in Middlebury will begin Monday, April 15.

MIDDLEBURY — A construction crew will begin preparing parts of S.R. 13 near Middlebury for a $2.6 million asphalt resurfacing project on Monday, April 15.

The work will cover several locations from S.R. 4 to just north of Yoder Drive in Middlebury, according to the Indiana Department of Transportation. The preparatory work is expected to be finished by 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 17, weather permitting.

Work on the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail began this week, with a lane restriction on northbound S.R. 13 stretching from York Drive for about 1,000 feet north to the Dairy Queen. Temporary markings direct traffic to the west side of S.R. 13, allowing traffic to flow in both directions during the trail’s construction. The restriction is expected to remain in place until May 8, weather permitting.

Asphalt resurfacing on S.R. 13 is scheduled to begin in mid-May, starting in the downtown area from Middlebury Elementary School just south of Spring Street to the bridge south of York Street. The project will include milling the surface and laying asphalt as well as installing some curb and gutter, curb ramps, sections of sidewalk and traffic signal improvements.

The remainder of the construction area on S.R. 13 from S.R. 4 to north of Yoder Drive will be milled and resurfaced later this spring. The entire project is scheduled to be complete in mid-September.

 In this July 16, 2013 aerial file photo, the downtown of the city of Detroit is shown. Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr raised more than a few eyebrows a year ago when he took the city into bankruptcy and predicted it would be out by the time his term expired in fall 2014. Because it is by far the largest city to file for municipal bankruptcy and the issues were so complex many experts predicted it would take years to resolve. But the city will take a major step toward that goal with a trial in federal bankruptcy court that starts Tuesday, Sept 2, 2014. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya, File)
