SR 106 to be closed in Bremen for underground work

MARSHALL COUNTY, Ind. - The Indiana Department of Transportation announces a road closure for State Road 106 in Bremen between Montgomery St and Washington St beginning Monday, July 13. 

This road closure is due to underground water and sewer main replacement, installation of new drainage, and utility work. The closure will be in place for approximately 60 days. 

Drivers should seek an alternate route. The official detour will follow State Road 331, U.S. 6 and C.R. 321/Douglas Rd. INDOT will be resurfacing State Road 106 from U.S. 6 W to U.S. 6 E which will cause future lane closures in this area.

U.S. 6 is also currently closed near Bremen between State Road 106 and Miami Rd for a bridge super structure replacement over the east branch of Bunch Ditch. The official detour for this closure follows State Road 106 and State Road 331. The project is expected to be completed by the end of September, 2020.
