S.R. 46 Bridge Near Bowling Green Reopens

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) officially opened the State Road 46 (S.R. 46) bridge over the Eel River near Bowling Green around 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, December 22. George R. Harvey & Son, Inc. from Danville completed the repair work ahead of schedule giving residents of Clay and Owen counties, along with countless other area motorists using this bridge, an early Christmas present. Construction began on the expedited repairs on Wednesday,

December 7. The bridge on S.R. 46 was closed November 1 after an INDOT Bridge Inspector discovered a crack in one of the steel gusset plates on the bridge during a bi-annual inspection. For the safety of the motoring public it was determined the bridge should be closed until repairs could be made. (Staff Photos by Travis Curry)
