Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Milestone Contractors, LP plans to reduce the U.S. 50 WB to one lane between Holiday Square Drive and Agrico Lane in Seymour starting Friday morning (Sept. 10) while crews install a 16-foot by six-foot box structure under the roadway.
The structure will be installed in two phases. The south half will be placed this coming weekend (Sept. 10-12) and the north half the following weekend (Sept. 17-19), weather permitting. Westbound traffic will resume its normal configuration (two lanes) each Monday once work is complete. Two eastbound lanes will remain open.
Drivers should use extra caution in the area while lanes are restricted. Westbound lanes of U.S. 50 will merge to a single lane near Azul Tequila and also split so the left-turn lane can be utilized at Myers Lane.
To turn left, drivers should use the left lane, and use the right lane to continue west on U.S. 50. Two thru lanes will become available near Wal-Mart (Agrico Lane).
Changeable message boards will be placed on I-65 showing S.R. 11 as an alternate route.
The surface lift of asphalt will be placed toward the end of the project, along with final pavement markings by the end of October this year.
Motorists are reminded to slow down, use extra caution and drive distraction-free through all work zones. All work is weather dependent and schedules are subject to change.
