U.S. 50 to Close in Seymour for Railroad Repairs

INDOT will close US 50 in Seymour for emergency repairs at the CSX rail crossing, located between Walnut Street and Jefferson Avenue, Wednesday at 7 a.m.

Officials say they are hopeful that the replacement of a faulty track can be completed by Thursday night. In the meantime, US 50 will remain closed until work has been completed. If CSX maintenance crews complete rail repairs earlier than anticipated, INDOT will reopen the highway to traffic at that time.

INDOT has designated the following detour, which will be signed:

· Eastbound US 50 traffic routes south on Walnut Street, east on Bruce Street, north on Jefferson Avenue.

· Westbound US 50 detours on State Road 11/Broadway, west on State Road 258/Sixth Street, south on Community Drive.

· Oversized loads going eastbound will be detoured north on State Road 135, east on State Road 258, south on State Road 11.

· Oversized loads going westbound will be detoured north on State Road 11, west on State Road 258, south on State Road 135.
