The Indiana Department of Transportation announces lane restrictions on I-64 for a bridge painting project.

Beginning on or around Tuesday April 13, contractors will close one lane on the I-64 bridges spanning Riddle Road about two miles east of State Road 237 in Crawford County for a bridge painting project.

Bridge painting helps inspectors identify potential structural issues more easily and provides protection against rust and corrosion of a bridge’s structural components.

During the project, one lane will be closed both east and westbound with one 16-foot lane open at all times.

Restrictions will be in place around the clock. Work is expected to last until early May depending upon weather conditions.

INDOT urges drivers to slow down and stay alert near crews.
