Traffic shifts on I-65 to put lanes back for winter travel

Contractors will be making two traffic switches this week as part of the INDOT construction project on Interstate 65 between Columbus and Seymour.

Officials say that southbound traffic will be shifted back to the southbound side on Friday night in an area between Seymour and Jonesville Road. On Saturday night, northbound traffic will be switched back to the northbound lanes in an area between Jonesville Road and Walesboro.

This is part of the winter shutdown configuration, and will restore traffic back to its normal lanes throughout the entire project.

When completed, the Interstate 65 project will expand the highway to three lanes in each direction between Columbus and Seymour.
