Interstate traffic switches planned this week


Two traffic switches are planned this week on northbound and southbound Interstate 65 as part of the reconstruction and added travel lanes project in Jackson and Bartholomew counties.

Tonight, E and B Paving Inc. will shift southbound traffic back to the southbound side of I-65 from the 58.5 mile marker to the 56 mile marker near the Jackson/Bartholomew county line.

Following the switch, crews will move barrier wall during daytime hours to move northbound traffic to southbound lanes at the same location Friday.

In this configuration, all I-65 traffic will travel on the southbound side from the 61.2 mile marker to the 56 mile marker.

Motorists should continue to adhere to the 55 mph speed restriction and 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 2020.
