Marshall County motorists should practice caution when traveling on U.S. 6 in the coming days. Beginning Monday, July 21 through the end of the day on Tuesday, July 22 crews will perform chip and fog seal operations to preserve the road surface between the east junction and west junction of State Road 106 near Bremen. Drivers wishing to travel either eastbound or westbound on U.S. 6 should take State Road 106 until it meets back with U.S. 6.
The road has been closed since early June so crews could tear out the old roadway and rebuild a new roadway. Indiana Department of Transportation spokesman Matt Deitchley said this construction was necessary for the new U.S. 31 interchange for U.S. 6.
