OWEN COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) – The Indiana Department of Transportation has declared a weight limit restriction of 13-tons on the Indiana 42 Bridge over Cataract Lake in Owen County.

The conditions of the bridge have warranted placing the weight restriction on the bridge.

Signs displaying “Weight Limit 13 Tons” are posted on both sides of the bridge and at the intersections of Indiana 42 with Indiana 59 and Indiana 142.

A repair contract is being developed and as soon as a timeline is known for construction, it will be released.
