INDOT to close portion of SR 9 for pavement project

The Indiana Department of Transportation will close a portion of State Road 9 for construction. 

 

SR 9 will close between Mackenzie Road and U.S. 40 in both directions. The closure is scheduled to begin on June 7, weather permitting. The road is scheduled to reopen in the beginning of August. 

 

Crews will be patching and repaving the road during the closure. Please plan ahead and know your alternate route. Plan some extra time to get around the closure, especially in the first few weeks.

Bees cause Southern Hancock elementary to close Wednesday

Covid, weather, maybe even an electrical or water issue are at the top of the list for reasons schools close for a day.  Not commonly on that list - bees.

 

The Southern Hancock Schools announced that Brandywine Elementary would be closed today after a large beehive was discovered.  The bees have been contained and aren't considered to be a threat to the public but the school system played it safe by closing the elementary for today, May 26.

 

The rest of the Southern Hancock is open Wednesday.
