Overnight I-65 work this week between Franklin and Greenwood

Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) officials say that the project that is adding lanes on Interstate 65 between Greenwood and Franklin will see an increase in work this week.

INDOT Spokesman Harry Maginity says that mainline construction activities have begun on the $84 million Major Moves 2020 project. He says that crews are setting concrete barrier walls between mile markers 90 and 94 and 97 and 99. Maginity notes that this work is requiring closures of the right lane at northbound and southbound worksites starting at 9 p.m. and ending at 6 a.m. throughout the week.

INDOT officials are hopeful that favorable weather and minimum construction delays will lead to this portion of the project, between Greenwood and Franklin, being finished by the end of October.
