(UNDATED) - The holidays mark the unofficial end to this year's road construction. Crews may continue earth moving, demolition, clearing and bridge work as weather permits this winter.

INDOT contractors will pull back barrels and barricades to the safest extent possible for holiday travel and the winter. Some restrictions will remain in place for ongoing road construction, including:

  • I-65 lanes are shifted for widening construction between State Road 26 (Exit 172) and State Road 25 (Exit 175) near Lafayette.
  • I-69 lanes are shifted toward the right shoulders for widening construction between State Road 37 (Exit 205) in Fishers and State Road 38 (Exit 219) near Pendleton. Large trucks are advised to use the left lane through the work zone.
  • Sections of State Road 37 from Bloomington to just south of Martinsville are reduced to one lane in each direction for Interstate 69 construction.

Know before you go

INDOT reminds Hoosiers to drive defensively and plan extra travel time during the holidays. Hoosier Helpers sponsored by State Farm will patrol urban interstates in Indianapolis, Northwest Indiana and Southern Indiana near Louisville during heavy travel periods this holiday.
