Terminal joint repair begins next week

Indiana Department of Transportation contractor E and B Paving Inc. plans to start work next week on a $4.5 million terminal joint replacement and repair project.

More than 75 locations across southeastern and south central Indiana, including two in Jackson County, are included on the contract.

On or after Monday, work will begin on Interstate 65 in Clark County near Lewis and Clark Parkway. Nighttime lane closures will be in effect at various bridge approaches from approximately 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. The contractor will work at each location for one to two nights at a time.

Jackson County locations include I-65 and State Road 11 (East Fork White River).

Work performed at each location will include milling and placement of polymeric asphalt to repair terminal joint damage sustained during winter freeze-thaw cycles.

The contract was awarded in February and is expected to be complete by mid-September.

Motorists should slow down, use extra caution and drive distraction-free through all work zones. All work is weather dependent.
