Weekend Work: Construction Around Marion County

(INDIANAPOLIS) – The Indianapolis Department of Transportation is asking drivers to plan ahead for another full weekend of construction in Marion County.

Contractors will be working to repair winter damage and improve pavement conditions in five different zones around Indianapolis interstates. 

Drivers are encourage to plan ahead this weekend and find alternate routes. In addition, they are reminded to pay attention, drive distraction free and slow down in work zones. 

Indiana State Police and the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department will be patrolling work zones and ticketing drivers for speeding, reckless driving and driving distracted. 

INDOT crews and Hoosier Helpers will be present on the interstates to make sure drivers are aware of slowing traffic and upcoming work zones. 

Construction work is weather dependent in some cases. Follow @INDOTEast on Twitter for the most up-to-date information on schedule changes.
