Newman Road Project Receives Indiana Engineering Achievement Award
The stone arch bridge structure was demolished, and the design and construction teams used an accelerated bridge construction bridge-slide technique to erect and install the new bridge structure. Newman Road from SR 26 to Benson Road was completely reconstructed and widened, allowing for two-way traffic at the underpass. The existing Newman Road was lowered to allow larger, heavier trucks to travel much more safely under the railroad bridge. The intersection of SR 26 and Newman Road was converted to a dual-lane roadway, and the addition of a lighted multi-use path for pedestrians and bicyclists completed the project.
