The Indiana Department of Transportation’s $1,439,736 pavement restoration project on Interstate 65 at Columbus will begin this weekend — weather permitting.
The road work begins Friday night. Various lane closings will be in place. A 45 mph speed limit will be enforced through the 1.58-mile construction zone when workers are present.
American Contracting of Jeffersonville is the state’s contractor for this repair project, which requires numerous partial-depth and full-depth concrete patches to be made where pavement is failing on the interstate from south of 100N to a half mile north of Carr Hill Road. Work includes pavement repairs on all four ramps at the State Road 46 interchange, the primary Columbus exit.
