Traffic switches are planned next week as part of the I-65 reconstruction and added travel lanes project in Bartholomew and Jackson Counties.
The Indiana Department of Transportation says that E&B Paving Inc. will shift traffic on southbound I-65 back to southbound lanes from mile marker 61.2 to mile marker 58.5 the evening of Tuesday, September 3rd. Traffic will shift back to northbound lanes from mile marker 58.5 to mile marker 56, and back to southbound lanes beginning at mile marker 56, north of S.R. 11 at Exit 55 at Jonesville.
Additionally, E&B Paving Inc. will shift traffic on northbound I-65 to southbound lanes from mile marker 58.5 to mile marker 61.2 on the evening of Thursday, September 5th. Traffic will shift back to northbound lanes at mile marker 61.2 using the existing crossover at Exit 64 at Walesboro. All of this work is dependent on the weather.
Drivers should be aware of the 55 mph speed limit in this area. Use extra caution in the ongoing construction zone between Columbus and Seymour. All trucks should use the left lane for travel.
The project is expected to be complete in August of 2020.
