Entry Description

Eastbound I-70 Traffic Shifting to New Concrete

 

HANCOCK COUNTY – Milestone Contractors plan to shift the left lane of eastbound Interstate 70 tonight onto new concrete on the south side of the highway.

 

The eastbound left lane currently crosses the median between Mt. Comfort Road (Exit 96) and State Road 9 (Exit 104) to share the westbound side of the highway, with counter flow traffic divided by a concrete barrier wall.

 

Milestone, the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) contractor for the $15.2 million pavement repair and replacement project, will restrict the left lane of eastbound I-70 at 9 p.m. tonight to finish painting pavement markings before opening the new left lane to traffic.

 

As part of the same contract, Milestone widened the I-70 bridges over Sugar Creek and lengthened the State Road 9 entrance ramp to westbound I-70. The contractor anticipates removing restrictions from the ramp by the end of this week. Work will resume on the westbound side of the interstate next year.

 

Drivers are advised to practice safe driving habits, such as following work zone speed limits, maintaining safe distances from other vehicles, and avoiding distractions. Learn of state highway restrictions and conditions ahead of time at www.TrafficWise.in.gov or by calling 1-800-261-ROAD (7623).
