HENDRICKS CO. – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces nightly ramp closures will begin on or after Tuesday, August 10 at the I-70 and State Road 39 interchange (Exit 59). This is for placing the top layer of asphalt on the ramps. The times below are estimates due to the fact the asphalt will need time to cool until it can hold traffic. The schedule is as follows:
- Tuesday August 10 from 9 p.m.- midnight closing the I-70 eastbound exit ramp
- Wednesday, August 11 from 12:01 a.m.-3 a.m. closing the I-70 eastbound on ramp
- Wednesday, August 11 from 9 p.m.-midnight closing the I-70 westbound exit ramp
- Thursday, August 12 from 12:01 a.m.-3 a.m. closing the I-70 westbound on ramp
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 project is scheduled for completion October 15, 2021.
