CASS AND FULTON COUNTIES, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces a road closure for State Road 25 between State Road 16 and State Road 114 beginning Monday, August 24.
The road will be closed for seal coating. Weather permitting, State Road 25 will reopen in the evening on Friday, August 28.
Drivers should seek an alternate route. The official detour will follow State Road 16, State Road 17 and State Road 114.
About Seal Coating:
During these operations, workers will apply a new driving surface to the roadway, which seals cracks and provides waterproof protection. Once the seal coat is complete, loose aggregate is applied and then swept from the road. After a curing period, crews will fog seal the new driving surface.
This is designed to extend the life of the pavement below for three to five years and lowers maintenance costs. Seal coating is a cost-effective pavement preservation technique that is utilized across the state of Indiana, saving an estimated six to 14 dollars in taxpayer expenditures for every dollar invested in extending the life of a roadway.
