Weekend ramp closures from westbound Interstate 265 to eastbound I-64 will begin on or after Friday, March 9, as part of a $3.9 million bridge rehabilitation project.
Pavement repairs and installation of a 3/8-inch polymeric overlay at Exit 121 will occur over three weekends—but not necessarily on successive weekends—beginning Fridays at 8 p.m. through 5 a.m. Mondays.
Traffic will be detoured via I-265 East to I-65 South to I-64.
At the same time, the Indiana Department of Transportation will patch, widen and place a 2-inch modified latex overlay on I-64’s eastbound bridge over Captain Frank Road while making substructure repairs.
The bridge—a 3-span 217-foot-long structure located 0.29 miles east of I-265 at the north edge of New Albany—will be restricted to two 11-foot-wide travel lanes. Construction is expected to continue through May.
INDOT officials advise motorists to expect lane shifts, changing traffic patterns and occasional delays.
In mid-May, similar operations will take place at two other I-64 bridges—westbound I-64 over Captain Frank Road and westbound I-64 over Quarry Road.
Ragle Inc. of Newburgh is Indiana’s contractor for this 4-bridge project in Floyd County.
