I-65 Added Travel Lanes Project will Change Traffic Patterns and Close Ramps

Motorists need to be aware of changes in traffic patterns

 

BOONE COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announce the I-65 southbound exit to Lafayette Ave. will close Monday, May 20 on or after 12:01 a.m.  This closure is for the contractor to rehabilitate the Lafayette Ave. Bridge and is expected to last for approximately 60 days.  During this ramp closure, one lane of northbound I-65 traffic will be shifted to the southbound side of the interstate.  This will restrict northbound traffic to a 15’ width restriction in each lane.  On Tuesday, May 28 on or after 12:01 a.m. the ramp from State Road 32 to I-65 southbound will close for reconstruction for seven days. 

 

Reith-Riley Construction Company, Inc. and designer R.W. Armstrong were awarded the $41,455,610 Major Moves design build contract.  The project on I-65 will add an additional lane in each direction and reconstruct the existing lanes of I-65 from six tenths of a mile north of S.R. 32 to one half mile south of Boone County Road 100 East.  This project also includes rebuilding the S.R. 39 Bridge over I-65 and the I-65 Bridge over Prairie Creek and rehabilitating the bridge over Lafayette Ave.  The project is scheduled to be completed in July of this year.

 

The speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph throughout the entire work zone.  This construction project has been targeted by the Indiana State Police and the Boone County Sheriff’s Department for increased enforcement activities in an effort to reduce speeding in the work zone.  INDOT encourages motorists to slow down and pay special attention while traveling in work zones throughout Indiana. For the latest news and information about INDOT, please visit www.in.gov/indot.
