(HENDRICKS CO.) – The Indiana Department of Transportation announce the I-70 project will move into new maintenance of traffic phase on Monday, July 6 from just west of State Road 267 near Clarks Creek to the Ronald Reagan Parkway.
Motorists will be shifted into the eastbound side of the interstate with three lanes for westbound and two lanes for eastbound travel.
The on-ramp from S.R. 267 to I-70 eastbound will be closed. The official detour for this ramp closure follows S.R. 267 to U.S. 40 to I-465.
This is scheduled for a 120-day closure with an incentive for the contractor to complete earlier. The max incentive is 60 days.
Milestone Contractors, L.P. was awarded this $43.9 million project that will rebuild the eastbound and westbound lanes of I-70 from one half of one mile west of S.R. 267 to Ronald Reagan Parkway and patch the interstate from just west of S.R. 267 to S.R. 39.
The westbound lanes will be rebuilt this year with the construction of the eastbound lanes occurring in 2021.
The project is scheduled for completion in the early summer of 2022.
