Nightly Lane Restrictions Begin Feb. 1 on I-65 in Bartholomew County

(BARTHOLOMEW CO.) – Nightly lane closures are scheduled to begin Monday, Feb. 1, on I-65 Northbound and Southbound in Bartholomew County.

Closures will be in place for two-to-three nights from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. at Denois (De noiz) Creek, Opossum Creek, and the Deaver Road overpass, located south of Columbus.

The lane closures will protect crews placing temporary barrier wall in the median and outside shoulders prior to bridge work as part of the added travel lanes project between Walesboro and Columbus.

Additional lane closures and restrictions will begin as early as mid-March as construction gets underway on the $65 million contract that includes the addition of a third travel lane on I-65 between State Road 58 and State Road 46, bridge widening and rehabilitation, structure replacement, and resurfacing between the Driftwood River Bridge and U.S. 31 at Taylorsville.

Motorists are reminded to slow down, use extra caution, and drive distraction-free through all work zones. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
