The Indiana Department of Transportation plans to close Interstate 65’s northbound off-ramp and southbound on-ramp at Memphis Road for pavement reconstruction as part of the state’s $67 million added travel lanes project between Exit 9 at Sellersburg and Exit 16 at Memphis Road. 

Closures are slated to occur—weather permitting—from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. this Friday and Saturday (SEPT 28 & 29).  The following weekend (OCT 5 & 6), INDOT plans to close I-65’s northbound on-ramp and southbound off-ramp for reconstruction. 

During these closures, contractor E & B Paving will mill and resurface the asphalt ramps, place pavement lines and reflective markers, and add stone along shoulder areas.  The ramp’s existing concrete base will be repaired where needed.   

Indiana has rebuilt I-65 in Clark County from a pavement break one mile north of S.R. 60 to a terminus 2.8 miles south of S.R. 160.  Travel lanes have been added in the median area to create a 6-lane highway.  Bridge superstructures at Memphis Road, Perry Crossing, Muddy Fork and Old S.R. 311 were widened and rebuilt.
