Interstate 65 work to slow traffic in Bartholomew, Jackson counties

Work on the Deaver Road bridge over Interstate 65 south of Columbus will be restricting traffic this week, according to INDOT.

Contractors will be closing lanes on the highway while installing deck pans over the interstate between 9 p.m. at night and 6 a.m. in the morning, starting tonight. The work should be wrapping up on Thursday, weather permitting.

Also, contractors will be closing lanes on the Interstate6 5 bridges over U.S. 50 at Seymour, starting today and lasting to near the end of June.

INDOT says contractors will be completing joint repairs and replacements on the bridges. The work is expected to take about 20 work days to complete. The schedule is dependent on the weather.

Lanes will be closing on weeknights from 9 to 6 in the morning.

INDOT urges you to slow down, to use extra caution and drive without distractions in and near all work zones.
