The Indiana Department of Transportation plans to close Interstate 64’s eastbound right lane from mile marker 117.5 to mile marker 119.5 this Sunday (APRIL 10) at 9 a.m. while construction crews saw cutpavement, remove failing roadbed and make full-depth concrete patches.

Sunday’s work is weather dependent.

This marks the beginning of weekend closures required by concrete placement and curing for a $7.2 million repair and resurfacing project on I-74 between State Road 62/S.R. 64 near Georgetown and the Kentucky state line at the Sherman-Minton bridge.

E & B Paving of Clarksville is INDOT’s contractor charged with making full-depth concrete patches and partial-depth asphalt patches before milling the roadway and installing a new asphalt surface on this 6-mile section of I-64 in Floyd County.

Concrete patching will occur every weekend—expect during Thunder Over Louisville and Derby weekend—9 a.m. Sunday mornings through 5 a.m. Monday mornings, weather permitting.  Partial depth asphalt patching will be scheduled during nighttime hours once concrete work has been completed.

I-64’s traffic count is 43,790 vehicles per day.
