Rolling Roadblock Saturday Night On I-65 From US 50 To State Road 58

Last updated on Tuesday, December 11, 2018

(BARTHOLOMEW & JACKSON COUNTIES) - Indiana Department of Transportation officials advise motorists traveling Interstate 65 to anticipate late-night delays Saturday between U.S. Highway 50 at Seymour and State Road 58 at the Walesboro exit.

From 11 p.m. Saturday (Dec. 15) to 1 a.m. Sunday (Dec. 16), Bartholomew County REMC has scheduled crews to retire two overhead primary electrical supply conductors.

Weather permitting, the operation will completely close I-65 - both northbound and southbound - in short intervals. Up to five "rolling roadblocks" may be used to slow I-65 traffic between mile markers 52.68 and 62.48 to 10 miles per hour.

These roadblocks will void lanes of traffic for approximately 20 minutes each at utility worksites.

The retired conductors are being replaced with an underground electrical supply line.
