Pothole, guardrail repairs planned on I-65

Indiana Department of Transportation’s contractor for constructing six lanes of Interstate 65 in Bartholomew and Jackson counties has scheduled crews to repair potholes and replace damaged guardrails today and Friday.

E & B Paving will perform maintenance operations on I-65 — northbound and southbound — between mile markers 49.1 and 67.1 in advance of winter weather, according to an INDOT news release.

Motorists may experience single-lane restrictions where crews are working during overnight hours from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Some shoulder and median work, which won’t require lane closures, will be performed during daytime hours, INDOT said.

Construction for the $143 million Next Level project between U.S. Highway 50 at Seymour and State Road 58 south of Columbus is expected to begin next spring.
