The Indiana Department of Transportation says that crews will be conducting two traffic switches on I-65 in Jackson and Bartholomew Counties as part of the $143 million reconstruction and added travel lanes project. INDOT says these switches will be the first step toward moving traffic into the project’s winter shutdown configuration.
On Friday night (Nov. 15), southbound traffic will be shifted back to the southbound side of I-65 from just south of State Road 11 to Seymour. On Saturday night (Nov. 16), northbound traffic will be shifted back to the northbound side of I-65 from just north of State Road 11 to south of State Road 58.
INDOT says that motorists should continue to adhere to the 55 mph speed restriction and use extra caution in the construction zone. All trucks should continue to use the left lane for travel.
The project is expected to be complete in 2020.
