The Indiana Department of Transportation announced bridge construction on State Road 15/Buffalo Street in Warsaw.

Crews will be rebuilding the bridge over Eagle Creek starting on or after June 21. Work is scheduled to end by mid-November.

During the work, SR 15 will not close and one lane in each direction will be open to traffic with a width restriction of 10 feet. The work zone will have a speed limit of 25 mph. Crews will complete the work in phases with traffic switching sides of the bridge as progress is made, according to a news release from INDOT.

INDOT reminds drivers to slow down and use caution while driving in and around work zones. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
