State Road 9 and U.S. 52 roundabout construction to begin soon

Road work approaching for new roundabout at the Shelby County intersection of State Road 9 and U.S. 52.

The project is slated to begin on May 1.

Also, starting the last week of April, E&B Paving will be constructing a temporary road that will relocate SR 9 to the east for construction of the west half of the new roundabout. There will be no access to SR 9 from US 52 throughout the construction of the new roundabout.

The detour route will remain the same throughout construction of the roundabout the only thing that will change is how SR 9 will be routed during construction and once west side is constructed, they will switch SR 9 onto the new roundabout.

Officially, the detour uses I-465, I-74 and SR 44 from Indianapolis to Rushville.

This closure will be for 120 days.
