INDOT schedules lane restrictions

Beginning Monday, the Indiana Department of Transportation plans to put lane restrictions at the Interstate 65 and State Road 46 interchange in Columbus.

Contract crews will begin the construction of temporary support structures under the bridge that passes over State Road 46.

The structures are being placed to provide additional support prior to installation of supplemental cable suspension systems. As this work begins, overweight truck restrictions on this portion of I-65 will remain in effect.

Overnight lane closures are expected to begin as early as Monday. Later in the week and early the following week, motorists can expect daytime lane and ramp restrictions between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. All ramps will remain open but restricted at times.

Installation of the supplemental suspension system is expected to be complete in 2023.

INDOT reminds drivers to slow down, use extra caution and consider worker safety when traveling through active construction zones. All work is weather-dependent, and schedules are subject to change.
