Motorists will experience overnight closures in westbound lanes of Interstate 64 for the next two weeks—beginning tomorrow evening (JULY 22)—while crews repair the roadway as part of Indiana Department of Transportation’s $7.2 million pavement preservation project from the Kentucky state line at the Sherman Minton bridge to State Road 62/S.R. 64 near Georgetown.

Road-Closure

E & B Paving, INDOT’s contractor, plans to make partial-depth asphalt patches on westbound I-64 nightly—weather permitting—starting at 7 p.m. each evening.  These repairs require closing mile-long sections of westbound lanes. Restrictions will be lifted each morning at 8 a.m.

Tomorrow night’s work begins in the westbound right lane of I-64 starting at the bridge.  At 9 p.m., INDOT will extend the closure to the center lane for repairs.  I-64’s westbound left lane will remain open to traffic.

Eastbound I-64 lanes have been patched.

Once all repairs have been completed, milling and paving operations will begin.

The contract completion date is October 31.
