(UNDATED) - The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces that traffic on U.S. 231) in Greene County will be stopped temporarily Monday.

Traffic will be stopped intermittently on U.S. 231 at the new Interstate 69 interchange near Scotland.

"It is anticipated 10 stoppages will take place, none lasting more than 20 minutes between the hours of 8 p.m. and 4:30 a.m. local time. These beams will be set during non-peak travel time to keep delays at a minimum for motorists," said INDOT District spokesperson Cher Elliott.

On Tuesday, traffic will also be stopped on County Road 900 East to allow for beams to be set for the new bridge over I-69.

It is anticipated 10 stoppages will take place between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. local time that day, Elliott said.

"Stopping traffic is required to allow bridge beams to be set for the new I-69 interchange and bridges. All lanes will be stopped in each direction as beams are sat on the piers," Elliott explained.

Indiana State Police will be on site to control traffic. Inclement weather can postpone the stoppages, Elliott said.

INDOT reminds motorists to follow the posted work zone speed limit, use caution and consider worker safety when traveling through a work zone.
