(HENDRICKS CO) – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces work on the new State Road 39 Bridge will have lane closures on I-70 to construct formwork and safety railings for the bridge copings.
The left lane on I-70 westbound under the State Road 39 bridge will be closed beginning at 9 p.m. Wednesday, March 11. Once the work over the left lane is complete the contractor will close the right lane.
On Thursday, March 12 the same work will occur in the eastbound lanes of I-70. Work should be wrapped up by 6 a.m. the following morning.
Milestone Contractors LP was awarded the $16.2 million contract. This project will redesign this interchange to a Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI). The interchange modification project is being built to add traffic capacity and relieve congestion for the current and future needs as development expands in this area. This interchange is scheduled to open to traffic in the fall of 2021.
