SR 62 to close south of Dillsboro

SR 62 to closeThe Indiana Department of Transportation plans to close State Road 62 south of Dillsboro on or after Monday, March 5, at a slide site 3 1/2 miles east of the Ripley-Dearborn County line. Motorists will be detoured around construction activities via S.R. 129 and U.S. 50.

Beaty Construction is the State’s contractor for a $5 million slide correction project that includes sites in both Dearborn and Ripley counties. The Boggstown contractor will build mechanically stabilized aggregate retaining walls to retain twin embankments - measuring 315 feet and 495 feet in width - at the S.R. 62 site near Dillsboro. Wire mesh held in place by geogrid straps will be back-filled with stone to secure the slopes.

These slopes were graded and erosion control measures were put in place in November before this section of S.R. 62 could be opened to winter traffic. Motorists can learn about highway work zones and other traffic alerts at indot.carsprogram.org. or call 1-800-261-7623 or 511 from a mobile phone.

KDH to provide take-home colon cancer kits during March

In recognition of Colon Cancer Awareness Month in March, King’s Daughters’ Health (KDH) will again be providing free take-home, DNA-based colon cancer testing kits through its physician/provider offices. Testing kits are available from physicians who care for adult patients – Family Medicine and Internal Medicine providers.

KDH to provide take home colon cancer kitsKDH urges men and women age 50 and over to discuss appropriate screening options for the prevention and early detection of colon cancer. Individuals who have a family history of colon cancer may need to begin screenings earlier. DNA-based testing kits are designed for men and women at average risk of colon cancer. Patients should talk to their provider about whether a DNA-based kit is appropriate for them.

The DNA-based testing kits will be available during March and must be returned by April 15. Take the kit home, follow the directions, and then return the kit to the provider’s office. If follow-up is needed, the provider’s office will contact the patient. A colonoscopy remains the gold standard for the early detection and prevention of colon cancer.

Beginning at age 50, men and women are encouraged to schedule a colonoscopy. During a colonoscopy, a physician can see inside the colon and remove any polyps for further evaluation.

For help finding a primary care provider call the KDH Patient Access Line at 812-801-8995.
