[INDOT] I-65 Traffic Shifts South Of Seymour
Start Date: 8/21/2013Start Time: 3:00 PM
End Date: 8/22/2013End Time: 3:00 PM
Entry Description

SEYMOUR, Ind.—The Indiana Department of Transportation will normalize southbound I-65 traffic south of U.S. 50/Seymour at 1 p.m. Friday.  Southbound traffic was narrowed Sunday between mile markers 48.5 and 45.5 to a single lane along the right shoulder.  This was done to allow construction crews to build up the left shoulder area of the north-south roadway for later traffic shifts.  Work is a part of the $54.7 million repair and resurfacing project. 

Motorists can expect lane shifts and restrictions every week until the end of this year’s construction season in November.


The John R. Jurgensen Company, INDOT’s contractor, is charged with renovating 21 lane-miles of pavement and 20 bridges along I-65 between U.S. Highway 50 at Seymour in Jackson County and State Road 56 at Scottsburg in Scott County.  The design/build project calls for:

  • full-depth concrete patching
  • partial depth HMA (asphalt) patching
  • undersealing the roadbed
  • replacement of underdrains
  • ramp overlays
  • bridge deck overlays
  • and “functional resurfacing” of the highway


“Functional resurfacing” mills away two inches of surface asphalt, then overlays existing pavement  with two lifts of asphalt—four inches in all.  On this project, the surface lift consists of Stone Matrix Asphalt (SMA), a premium mix designed for 14 years of service before subsequent resurfacing.
