BARTHOLOMEW CO. — Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Force Construction Company plans to close lanes overnight next week on I-65 NB and SB at the Deaver Road overpass in Bartholomew County for installation of deck pans over the interstate. The work is scheduled ahead of pouring the concrete bridge deck in the coming weeks.
Lane closures will take place between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. starting Monday, May 10, and continue through Thursday, May 13, weather permitting. The closures will help protect traffic from overhead work at the overpass.
Deaver Road will remain closed over I-65 through mid-to-late June for continued work on a superstructure replacement project. The official detour follows C.R. 175 W. to C.R. 450 S./S.R. 58 to C.R. 300 W.
In addition, an overnight lane closure is planned tonight (Thursday, May 6) on I-65 SB at MM 64 in Bartholomew County for guardrail repair. A single lane will close from approximately 9 p.m. Thursday night to 6 a.m. Friday morning.
Southbound traffic remains shifted to the outside lane and shoulder throughout project limits (MM 64 to MM 68). The $65 million added travel lanes contract is expected to be complete in 2023.
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.
