For motorists who depend on the Interstate 65 and State Road 46 interchange, the summer of confusion is slowly beginning to wind down.
Just after the Memorial Day weekend, works crews began shutting down lanes or ramps at the interchange on the west side of Columbus almost every weekend.
The interchange has become a maze of orange construction barrels, closed I-65 entrance and exit ramps and backed up traffic as crews continue work on a $1.4 million concrete patching project.
The work is repairing joints and cracks in the top level of the concrete pavement, and at times involves removing and replacing a portion of the concrete slabs in the roadway.
American Contracting and Services, Inc. of Jeffersonville is repairing the I-65 concrete surface between County Road 100N and Carr Hill Road, and also repairing all four ramps that offer an entrance or exit to I-65 at State Road 46.
