The Indiana Department of Transportation plans to close Interstate 64’s westbound ramp to eastbound I-265—weather permitting—tomorrow night (AUGUST 7) at Exit 121 between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. while contracted crews remove barrels, barrier wall and temporary stripping used for traffic control at Captain Frank Road. Detour signs are in place.
Once completed, three lanes of traffic will be restored until Phase III operations for the $3.9 million bridge refurbishment project at four New Albany-area structures resumes.
Patching, widening and deck overlay installation on westbound I-64 bridges over Captain Frank Road and Quarry Road will begin along the right side of the roadway in approximately two weeks. At that time, lane closures will be imposed between mile markers 1222.5 and 120.0.
Meanwhile, operations not calling for traffic restrictions will be completed along I-64 shoulder areas. The bridge deck overlays on the left side of westbound I-64 have been completed.
Ragle of Newburgh is Indiana’s contractor.
