The Indiana Department of Transportation announces lane restrictions for State Road 37 near Paoli for a pavement project.

Beginning on or around Monday, Aug. 23, contractors will close one lane of S.R. 37 just north of County Road 930 South to perform the operation. Workers will be applying a high friction pavement treatment at this location.

High friction pavement treatments are used to help motorists increase stopping distance and provide more traction in areas where applied.

Work is expected to last until mid-September depending upon weather conditions and will take place primarily in the evening and overnight hours.

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