U.S. 6 to close for railroad crossing construction

DEKALB CO., Ind. (ADAMS) – The Indiana Department of Transportation says that a portion of U.S. 6 in Butler will close for railroad crossing reconstruction between Maple Street and C.R. 28.

Norfolk Southern is scheduled to start the work on or after August 15, with work expected to last for a week. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.

During the closure, drivers are asked to use the approved detour of State Road 1, State Road 427, Ohio State Route 34 and Ohio State Route 49, or seek an alternate route.

INDOT encourages drivers to consider worker safety by slowing down, driving distraction-free and using extra caution while driving in and around all work zones.
