Interstate 65 traffic to be restricted south of Columbus Friday night

You will see some restrictions on Interstate 65 between Columbus and Walesboro starting Friday night.

The Indiana Department of Transportation says that the left lane of northbound 65 will be closed starting at about 9 p.m. Friday night through 6 a.m. Saturday morning between the 65 and 66 mile markers.

Crews with contractor Force Construction will be removing a temporary barrier wall and moving equipment. Traffic will be slowed through a series of rolling roadblocks, with traffic reduced to 45 mph for 5-10 minutes at a time.

INDOT says you should use extra caution and watched for slowed traffic in the area. There will be electronic message boards and queue trucks to warn drivers of the restrictions.

The work schedule is dependent on the weather.
