Seven-day closure to begin on or after July 20

The previously announced 90-day closure of St. Joe Road over I-65 in Sellersburg has been reduced to a seven-day closure starting on or after Tuesday, July 20.

The rehabilitation project will consist of replacing the deck of the bridge. The official detour will follow S.R. 60 to C.R. 311 to U.S. 31 to Renz Avenue to Clark Street.

Concrete patching is also planned on the piers underneath the bridge. This work will require lane closures on I-65.

Two travel lanes will be maintained during the day and one travel lane at night, from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Work under the bridge is scheduled to be complete by mid-August.

E&B Paving Inc. was awarded the contract in December 2020. The completion date is October 1, 2021.

Motorists are reminded to slow down, use extra caution, and drive distraction-free in and near all work zones. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
