Changes coming next week to I-65 Added Travel Lanes Project

Motorists need to be aware of changes in traffic patterns

 

BOONE COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announce there are changes coming for the I-65 added travel lanes project.  The contractor will be paving the northbound I-65 ramps at State Road 39 (S.R. 39) and on S.R. 39 beginning on Monday, July 29 and continuing through next week only at night.  Crews plan to begin working after 7 p.m.

 

On or after Thursday, August 1 the plan is to move northbound traffic onto the newly constructed northbound lanes of I-65.  The will occur during the evening hours.  Also, beginning on or after Thursday, August 1, crews will have nighttime lane restrictions in the southbound lanes on the north end of the project from north of US 52 down to the Prairie Creek Bridge to patch and resurface the interstate.

 

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 mid September 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.
