I-65 ramp near Edinburgh to close Tuesday night

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) will close the northbound exit ramp from Interstate 65 to southbound U.S. 31 at the 76 mile marker near Edinburgh. INDOT Spokesman Harry Maginity says that the closure will take place, beginning Tuesday at 9 p.m. and running through 6 a.m. on Wednesday. He explains that the closure is needed to allow an environmental remediation team to clean up a spill site that was contaminated by diesel fuel from a recent truck crash.

Maginity says that Environmental Remediation Services of Indianapolis will remove affected soil at the ditch on the east side of the exit ramp and restore pre-crash conditions. He explains that the contaminated area measures 25’ X 63’.

INDOT says that drivers can access U.S. 31 at the interchange via northbound I-65’s Edinburgh exit ramp.
