[INDOT - East Central] Overnight Restriction on Eastbound I-70 (Hancock County)

Entry Description

Overnight Restriction on Eastbound I-70

 

HANCOCK COUNTY – Contractors for the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) plan to restrict the right lane of eastbound Interstate 70 Friday night for work on the south shoulder. Crews will restrict the lane just east of Mt. Comfort Road (Exit 96) beginning at 9 p.m. and expect to reopen before 6 a.m. Saturday.

 

Milestone Contractors, the INDOT contractor for the $15.2 million project, is currently repairing or replacing pavement on the westbound side of I-70 between State Road 9 (Exit 104 to Greenfield) and Mt. Comfort Road (Exit 96). The left lane of westbound I-70 is diverted across the median to share the eastbound side of the interstate. Temporary concrete barrier separates opposing directions of traffic.

 

The temporary traffic configuration is very similar to the work zone that was in place last year when Milestone repaired the eastbound side of the highway. All lane restrictions are expected to take place during off-peak traffic periods, weeknights between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. and on weekends. The project is on schedule to be complete this summer.

 

Motorists are urged to always comply with work zone speed limits, maintain safe distances from other vehicles and avoid distractions to improve safety for both highway workers and motorists. INDOT partners with the Indiana State Police to provide increased work zones patrols and promote public safety.

INDOT encourages motorists, residents and businesses to subscribe to receive email updates using the GovDelivery red envelope icon. Updates will also be posted on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/INDOTEastCentral and on Twitter @INDOT_ECentral.
