Late-night traffic delays planned for Interstate 65


Indiana Department of Transportation officials advise motorists traveling Interstate 65 to anticipate delays late Saturday and early Sunday morning between U.S. 50 at Seymour and State Road 58 at the Walesboro exit.

From 11 p.m. Saturday to 1 a.m. Sunday, Bartholomew County REMC has scheduled crews to retire two overhead primary electrical supply conductors.

Weather permitting, the operation will completely close I-65 — both northbound and southbound — in short intervals. Up to five “rolling roadblocks” may be used to slow interstate traffic between mile markers 52.68 and 62.48 to 10 mph. These roadblocks will void lanes of traffic for approximately 20 minutes each at utility worksites.

The retired conductors are being replaced with an underground electrical supply line.
