I-65 lane restrictions set for early next week near Franklin

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) will restrict lanes on Interstate 65 in Johnson County during overnight hours next week for pavement patching.

INDOT Spokesman Harry Maginity says that plans call for repairs to be made Monday night in both the right and left lanes of southbound I-65 on either side of the Main Street bridge at Greenwood between mile markers 100 and 98.8. On Tuesday night, patching will occur in both I-65 southbound lanes on either side of the Hurricane Creek bridge between mile markers 93.8 and 92. Maginity says that spot patching may also take place in northbound lanes Tuesday night between mile markers 93.8 and 88.

Overnight restrictions will begin at 9 p.m. and end before 6 a.m.

Milestone is the state’s contractor for this $84 million Major Moves 2020 added travel lanes project on I-65 between Greenwood and Franklin. Maginity says that crews are currently focused on bridge work at State Road 44, Hurricane Creek, Whiteland Road and Main Street. He adds that shoulder strengthening operations have been ongoing during nighttime hours preparing the roadway for future traffic shifts.
