Lane restrictions begin next week at the I-65 interchange in Columbus

BARTHOLOMEW CO. — The Indiana Department of Transportation announces lane restrictions at the I-65/S.R. 46 interchange in Columbus. Starting next week, contract crews will begin the construction of temporary support structures under the bridge that passes over S.R. 46.

The structures are being placed to provide additional support prior to the installation of supplemental cable suspension systems. As this work begins, overweight truck restrictions on this portion of I-65 will remain in effect.

Overnight lane closures are expected to begin as early as Monday, November 28, at the I-65/S.R. 46 interchange. Later in the week and early the following week, motorists can expect daytime lane and ramp restrictions between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. All ramps will remain open, but restricted at times.

Installation of the supplemental suspension system is expected to be completed in early 2023.

INDOT reminds drivers to slow down, use extra caution and consider worker safety when traveling through active construction zones. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
