ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. (WFFT) - People traveling State Road 101 in eastern Allen County will have to find another way later this summer.
The road will be closed as crews replace the road from Woodburn to nearly the DeKalb County line.
INDOT will be using a technique known as full-depth reclamation.
This is the first time INDOT is using this method in northeast Indiana.
It recycles the pavement and dirt in the road now for a base, saving time and money.
"Re-using materials is very economic, it's a good use of taxpayer money. That also means it will not end up borrower or disposal sight, it's not going to end up in the landfill," said INDOT spokeswoman Nichole Thomas.
Construction on State Road 101 is expected to begin mid-June and go through the end of construction season.
