I-65 bridge demolition takes place Monday night

Bridge demolition work tonight on I-65 in Greenwood will cause traffic delays on Main Street.

The Indiana Department of Transportation says that its contractor plans to remove steel beams from Interstate 65’s southbound bridge over Main Street during overnight hours tonight. An INDOT spokesman says that this work will require several temporary traffic stoppages that will delay drivers traveling on Main Street between the 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. The delays are anticipated to last approximately 20 minutes each. This work is dependent on the weather.

INDOT says this work is part of the $84 million project to add travel lanes between Greenwood and Franklin.
