2-week detour marked for drivers

Motorists driving southbound on U.S. 33 wanting to turn right onto Washington Center Road will need to use the marked detour starting Tuesday, Aug. 26. The detour will last approximately two weeks, weather permitting.

Drivers are directed to turn left onto Merchant Road, then right onto Huguenard Road, and right onto Washington Center.

During this time, Primco Inc. will construct the island at the northwest corner of U.S. 33 and Washington Center as part of the Indiana Department of Transportation'€™s project to add travel lanes on U.S. 33.
