I-65 Northbound, I-70 Eastbound Reopen to Traffic

Clearance for Virginia Ave. Bridge Posted at 13 Feet 11 Inches


INDIANAPOLIS – Effective immediately, I-65 northbound and I-70 eastbound have reopened beneath a steel bridge beam that was damaged on Friday.


“The Indiana Department of Transportation thanks the contractors and our in-house bridge, maintenance and construction staff who worked day and night this weekend to safely reopen the interstate,” said Greenfield District Deputy Commissioner Brandye Hendrickson. “We also thank motorists for their patience.”


United Consulting designed splice plates using material available from Indiana Steel & Engineering Corp., which cut and drilled the steel plates to the appropriate dimensions. Harmon Steel installed temporary support structures and installed the steel splice plates using bolts provided by Midwest Structural Products. Rieth-Riley Construction helped to organize the repairs.


Just before the interstate reopened, an INDOT bridge inspector measured the Virginia Avenue overpass and directed the vertical clearance be posted at 13 feet 11 inches. All vehicles traveling state highways over 13 feet 6 inches in height are required to obtain a permit through the Indiana Department of Revenue.


Motorists can learn about Indiana traffic conditions, road closures, construction information and crashes by visiting or calling 1-800-261-ROAD (7623).  For the latest INDOT news and information visit, follow @INDOT_ECentral on Twitter and “like” the Indiana Department of Transportation: East Central on Facebook.
