HENDRICKS CO. – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces I-70 eastbound lanes are scheduled to reopen Wednesday, December 8 overnight. During this time the State Road, 267 on-ramps to I-70 eastbound will open. This work is weather-dependent.
Once the traffic switch has occurred the contractor will remove the temporary lane markings within the area eastbound traffic was utilizing and remove the concrete barrier wall. This work is anticipated to last through Sunday, December 12.
Milestone Contractors, L.P. was awarded this $43.9 million project that rebuilt the eastbound and westbound lanes of I-70 from one-half of one mile west of S.R. 267 to Ronald Reagan Parkway and patched the interstate from just west of S.R. 267 to S.R. 39. The project is scheduled for completion in the early summer of 2022.
INDOT encourages drivers to slow down, exercise caution, and drive distraction-free through all work zones.
