Construction Traffic Barrel

Over the weekend, a section of Northbound Interstate 65 in Indiana was reopened.

“I am grateful for the Indiana Department of Transportation’s around-the-clock efforts to reopen the interstate ahead of schedule,” said Governor Mike Pence. “We appreciate the patience of citizens in communities that have been affected. Construction in this area and others is ongoing and we urge motorists to be mindful as they travel our highways.”

The northbound lanes of I-65 from Lebanon to Lafayette were reopened to traffic on September 6, though the area will remain an ongoing construction zone as workers will continue the widening and rehabilitation project. Drivers are warned to watch their speed and following distance.

“Planned I-65 lane closures for construction will continue at night, when traffic is lighter, between State Road 38 (Exit 168) and State Road 25 (Exit 175). Drivers may use U.S. 52, State Road 28 and U.S. 231 as an alternate route to avoid the nighttime lane closures,” Indiana Department of Transportation warns.

Drivers are urged to use U.S. 52, State Road 28 and U.S. 231.
