The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announce State Road 42(S.R. 42) is closed in Clay County one and a half miles west of State Road 59 (S.R. 59).
Due to heavy rains that moved through the area Monday, twin pipe structures under the road have eroded on the north side of S.R. 42 causing the westbound lane to collapse.
This closure will remain in place until a determination has been made tomorrow regarding repairs.
INDOT crews are in the process of setting up a detour that will follow S.R. 59 north to I-70 westbound to US 40/State Road 46 and then back north to S.R. 42. Traffic traveling in the opposite direction are to use this same detour in reverse.
