The Indiana Department of Transportation Ind. 262 this afternoon at a second slide site where roadside elevation sank 18 inches and guardrail was lost in recent days. Barricades have been placed at Huseman Road in Ohio County preventing vehicles from traveling north on Ind. 262.
This past weekend, INDOT closed Ind. 262 at a slide three miles south of U.S. 50 in Dearborn County, prohibiting southbound travel. The two locations with failing slopes are approximately two miles apart. A third slide area located between the two is being carefully monitored.
Motorists are advised to detour around the Ind. 262 closure via U.S. 50 and Ind. 56.
Officials say heavy rains and flooding have greatly contributed to unstable soil conditions.
The state is retaining a specialty contractor to stabilize slopes through a process called “soil nailing.” Work at the first slide site begins in two to three weeks. Crews will shoot 20-foot steel shafts into the embankment. Once the soil has been “nailed,” INDOT can proceed with pavement repairs.
