Interstate 65 traffic switch planned to start Sunday

A traffic switch is scheduled to begin this weekend as part of the Interstate 65 reconstruction project in Bartholomew and Jackson counties.

On Sunday evening, weather permitting, E and B Paving Inc. will switch southbound traffic from the 53.7-mile-marker south of the East Fork White River bridge in Jackson County to the 50-mile marker at Seymour.

Southbound traffic will move to newly constructed concrete pavement on the northbound side of I-65 until new southbound lanes are constructed.

The Indiana Department of Transportation urges motorists to continue to exercise caution in the ongoing construction zone between Columbus and Seymour.
