HENDRICKS CO. – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces the contractor plans to close the I-70 eastbound exit ramp to Ameriplex Parkway on or after Thursday, June 10 after 9 p.m. through Tuesday, August 10. The official detour follows I-70 eastbound to I-465 southbound to S.R. 67 (Kentucky Ave.).
On or after Saturday, June 26 traffic will be shifted into the westbound side of the interstate with three lanes for westbound and two lanes for eastbound travel. The on ramp from State Road 267 to I-70 eastbound will be closed. The official detour for this ramp closure follows S.R. 267 to U.S. 40 to I-465. This is scheduled for a 120 day closure with an incentive for the contractor to complete earlier. The max incentive is 60 days.
Milestone Contractors, L.P. was awarded this $43.9 million project that will rebuild the eastbound and westbound lanes of I-70 from one half of one mile west of S.R. 267 to Ronald Reagan Parkway and patch the interstate from just west of S.R. 267 to S.R. 39. The westbound lanes were rebuilt last year with the eastbound lanes construction occurring this year. The project is scheduled for completion in early summer of 2022.
INDOT encourages drivers to slow down, exercise caution and drive distraction-free through all work zones.
