The Indiana Department of Transportation will close Interstate 65 travel lanes and rest area ramps next week to advance construction efforts for the $12,385,500 Seymour District project to repair and repave nine miles of north-south roadway between Scottsburg and Henryville.
- Rest Area ramps close on northbound I-65 at the 22.0 mile marker beginning at midnight Sunday night when entrance access is barricaded to facilitate full-depth concrete patching. Allowing time for travels to vacate the facility, INDOT will delay the exit ramp closure until 9 a.m. Monday. Exit and entrance ramps will reopen by 6 p.m. Friday.
- Southbound I-65 right lane will close between mile markers 25.0 and 20.0 from 9 p.m. Sunday until Friday morning for partial-depth asphalt patching.
- Northbound I-65 right lane will close between mile markers 20.0 and 25.0 from 9 p.m. Sunday until Friday morning for partial-depth asphalt patching.
The adjacent left lane of I-65—both southbound and northbound—will remain open to traffic, limited to 11-foot widths.
These pavement repairs are being done in advance of milling and repaving operations.
E & B Paving is the state’s contractor for this I-65 project which extends from 0.5 miles north of S.R. 160 to 0.43 miles north of S.R. 56 in Scott and Clark Counties. Work includes removal and replacement of twin bridges at Brownstown Road.
