Smith Valley Road Phase III
The project involved reconstruction of Smith Valley Road from SR 37 to Morgantown Road. The project also included rehabilitation of Johnson County Bridge No. 73. Work elements on the existing single-span bridge included removal of the superstructure and portions of the substructure, widening the substructure, and placement of a new superstructure. The road reconstruction consisted of completely removing and replacing the old asphalt pavement, widening, and soil stabilization. A new storm drainage system was added throughout the project to relieve drainage issues.
Concrete curb was placed throughout the project, along with asphalt drives, concrete drives, concrete sidewalks, and handicap ramps in residential areas. This LPA project was performed for Johnson County in conjunction with the INDOT Seymour District. Construction costs were $2.54 million (Contract R-28418).
