A road in northeast Davis Township will be closed for the next few months to accommodate a bridge replacement. The Starke County Highway Department has shut down 700 North between 500 East and U.S. 35 to replace the bridge over the Robbins Ditch built in 1975. The road is expected to reopen in early June.
Until then, motorists can take 500 East to 800 North to U.S. 35 to get around the closure. The bridge replacement is one of three on the Starke County Highway Department’s 2016 schedule. Northern Indiana Construction was awarded the bid for the project for $343,554.81.
