Update - STH 26 Bypass Project

Below is an update on the State Highway 26 Bypass Project dated Wednesday, September 26, 2012.

Good afternoon, 

Today we have some great news to report on the State Highway 26 Project, between County Highway Y and Townline Road. On Friday at 5:00 P.M. (3 days ahead of schedule), our crews will be opening the New Harmony Town Hall Interchange on State Highway 26. This also includes the New Townline Road overpass just north of Harmony Town Hall. After the opening, you will be able to access Townline Road by using the Interchange and traveling northwest through the roundabouts to the intersection of Townline Road. The new interchange features bike / pedestrian accommodations and street lighting. 

To the south, crews are busy constructing the new frontage roads between County Highway Y and Woodcrest Drive. The placement of the new concrete curb and gutter for the frontage roads will start in early October. This work will continue for another month. Please slow down through this area, as many travelers need to access all of the businesses in the area. Please follow all of the traffic signs at the Woodcrest Drive splitter island. A left turn from Woodcrest to State Highway 26 southbound is prohibited and dangerous. 

As always, we appreciate your patience during construction. Please slow down and drive cautiously. If you have any questions or need any clarifications on the upcoming changes, please feel free to contact the State Highway 26 project staff at our project field office.
