Morphey Construction plans to close U.S. 35/State Road 22 for up to 25 days starting on or after Monday, Oct. 2 for a culvert replacement project east of Kokomo.

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) awarded a $289,000 contract to Morphey Construction to replace a box culvert on U.S. 35/State Road 22 (also State Road 19) between State Road 19 and Howard County Road 600 East.

During construction, a signed detour will direct through traffic south to State Road 26 via State Road 19 and State Road 213. 

All work on the project is expected to be complete in November.
