INDOT is reporting that work has begun on the overpass project that will take traffic into downtown Columbus over the railroad tracks at State Roads 11 and 46.

The agency reports that you will see little effect through the spring, but you should keep an eye out for construction traffic entering and exiting the work site and there will be equipment and materials being delivered in the coming weeks.

The work will eventually realign State Road 46 at the downtown bridges and create two large circular interchanges that will reroute and lift traffic over the tracks..

You will see lane restrictions and closures late next summer and fall.

They expect to open the new interchange in 2021.
