INDOT will hold a public information meeting on Wednesday, November 16 for the ongoing major pavement improvement project on U.S. 231 in Greencastle.

The meeting will be held at the Putnam County Fairgrounds, located at 191 U.S. 231, Greencastle, IN 46135. The meeting will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

This project includes three phases. INDOT construction contractor Rieth Riley will hold public information meetings before work starts on U.S. 231 at the beginning of each construction season. •

  • Phase One involves work from the beginning of the project (S.R. 240) to the intersection of Washington Street and Bloomington Street. It also involves pavement patching from the railroad crossing to the end of the project under a flagging operation. Currently, there are moving lane restrictions in both the northbound and southbound lanes on U.S. 231 between State Road 240 (Veterans Memorial Highway) and Frazier Street, six days a week, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Flaggers are out directing traffic. These restrictions are allowing crews to safely perform patchwork, and are expected to last through mid-December, weather permitting. 
     
  • Phase Two also involves work from the beginning of the project (S.R. 240) to the intersection of Washington St. and Bloomington St. That work will include milling, curb replacement, and curb ramp reconstruction. INDOT construction contractor Rieth Riley will hold a public information meeting in March of 2023. Under this phase, work will also happen on Jackson Street from the railroad crossing to the end of the project (W. Frazier St.). That work includes storm sewer construction and milling. Crews will maintain one-way, northbound traffic at a posted speed limit of 20 miles-per-hour. Access will be maintained for residents and business owners. 
     
  • Phase Three involves full-depth pavement replacement work from the intersection of Washington Street and Bloomington Street to the railroad crossing on Jackson St. INDOT construction contractor Rieth Riley will hold a public information meeting in March of 2024. Crews will maintain one-way, northbound traffic during construction, at a posted speed limit of 20 miles-per-hour. Construction will only close one ramp per city block at any given time.

Alternate routes, as needed, include U.S. 231 to U.S. 40 to S.R. 75 to U.S. 36 and back, or U.S. 231 to S.R. 240 to S.R. 75 to U.S. 36 and back.

This public information meeting is an opportunity for INDOT construction contractor Rieth Riley to meet with members of the community regarding the road work and address concerns community members may have regarding the project.
