Interstate restrictions to resume in Johnson County

Restrictions on I-65 in Johnson County are expected to begin soon.

Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) Spokesman Harry Maginity says that the contractor plans to set concrete barrier wall sections, during overnight hours, between mile markers 94.1 and 88.7. He says that the work requires single lane closures at work sites beginning at 9 p.m. and ending at 7 a.m.

Maginity says that the tentative schedule calls for southbound I-65 left lanes to close Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights (APRIL 18, 19, 20) between Whiteland Road and State Road 44 at Franklin. He says that northbound I-65 left lanes should close to traffic Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights (APRIL 20, 21, 22).

Maginity says that Milestone is the state’s prime contractor for the $84 million Major Moves 2020 Project that is rebuilding existing roadway and adding median travel lanes on I-65 between Greenwood and Franklin. He explains that, in addition to mainline construction, bridge work continues next week at State Road 44, Hurricane Creek and Main Street at Greenwood.
