JOHNSON CO. – Indiana Department of Transportation contractor HIS Constructors plans to conduct rolling slowdowns two nights this week at County Line Road (C.R. 800 E.) over I-65 in southeastern Johnson County.
Traffic will be stopped for up to 20 minutes at a time for hydrodemolition of bridge decks over the interstate. Intermittent stoppages will take place at the S.R. 44 to I-65 SB on-ramp at Franklin (Exit 90) on Wednesday, April 7, between the hours of 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. The same stoppages will take place at the S.R. 252 to I-65 NB on-ramp at Edinburgh (Exit 80) on Thursday, April 8, between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. Traffic will be slowed to 20 mph at the bridges located approximately three miles north of S.R. 252 near MM 83 both nights. Drivers should consider allowing extra time to reach their destinations or using an alternate route to avoid delays.
The bridges are located approximately three miles north of State Road 252 near mile marker 83. Drivers should consider allowing extra time to reach their destinations or using an alternate route to avoid delays.
This work is part of a $800,000 bridge rehabilitation contract that was awarded last fall. County Line Road is scheduled to remain closed over I-65 through early August.
The official detour follows C.R. 550 S. to C.R. 700 E. to C.R. 400 S.
Motorists are reminded to slow down, use extra caution, and drive distraction-free in and near all work zones. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
