Interstate 65 closure north of Austin announced


A full closure is scheduled on northbound Interstate 65 north of Austin during the overnight hours of Tuesday.

Starting at 9 p.m., both northbound lanes will be closed north of State Road 256/Austin at the 35 mile marker near the Scott-Jackson county line.

The closure will allow personnel from the Indiana Department of Transportation to assist the Indiana State Police with removal of a lost load from a previous traffic incident.

The northbound lanes are expected to reopen by 3 a.m. Wednesday. Southbound traffic should not be affected.

Motorists will need to utilize an alternate route while cleanup work is in progress. State police will assist with traffic at State Road 256 and U.S. 31 in Austin.
