Contract Awarded to Prevent Whitewater River Erosion Near IN 121

WASHINGTON, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) has awarded a $332,000 contract to Milestone Contractors to construct erosion control measures along the Whitewater River near State Road 121 between Laurel and US Highway 52.

Milestone will place geotextile fabric, install a stone wall and plant soil-stabilizing vegetation along the riverbank to prevent soil erosion from encroaching near State Road 121 south of the Laurel feeder dam.

Initial work will begin before the end of March to install a temporary sandbag coffer dam and protective curtain around the work site. Afterward, all work will be performed from the top of the riverbank. All work on the project is expected to be complete before the end of July.

Some flagging of traffic will be necessary on State Road 121 during daylight hours. Motorists should be alert for workers in the area and large trucks entering and exiting the construction zone.
