More U.S. 50 traffic restrictions set to start today in Seymour

Drivers in Seymour will see traffic tie-ups on U.S. 50 while crews install a box culvert under the road between Holiday Square Drive and Agrico Lane, starting this morning.

During the work, the westbound lanes of U.S. 50 will be reduced to a single lane Friday through Sunday. Traffic should return to normal by Monday. The two eastbound lanes will remain unchanged to begin with. The following weekend the eastbound lanes will be reduced to a single lane for the second half of the work.

If you are driving in the area, you should use extra caution in the area while lanes are restricted. Changeable message boards will be placed on I-65 showing State Road 11 as an alternate route.

INDOT asks that you slow down, use extra caution and drive without distractions in all work zones. The work schedule depends on the weather.
