I-65 traffic snarls to clear up for Christmas travel

The lanes of Interstate 65 from Edinburgh to Greenwood will be cleaning up for the holiday season. The Indiana Department of Transportation says that they will be returning traffic to its normal direction on the northbound and southbound lanes starting Friday or Saturday.

Two newly constructed center lanes will open to traffic between Franklin and Greenwood, allowing the department to close crossovers and shift back to two northbound and two southbound lanes.

Crossovers at the Main Street bridge in Greenwood will remain in place this winter as crews work to rebuild the bridge.

Similarly crossover lanes will close and traffic flow will return to normal from Franklin to Edinburgh. There will be some lane closures Thursday and Friday as they mark the pavement, and remove barriers and temporary pavement markings.
