JEFFERSONVILLE, Indiana — Indiana Department of Transportation officials are warning drivers to be prepared for delays on Interstate 65 in southern Indiana as wrok begins on the Ohio River Bridges Project.

Northbound and southbound I-65 will narrow from three lanes to two from the Kennedy Bridge north for nearly 1 1/2 miles starting Tuesday in what transportation officials are calling the "Big Squeeze." Southbound I-65 is scheduled to be reduced to two lanes on Tuesday, while northbound will be squeezed Wednesday.

The lane closures are expected to be in place late 2016.

The Ohio River Bridges Projects suggests motorists adjust travel plans to avoid peak times and consider alternate routes, including the Sherman Minton Bridge and the Clark Memorial Bridge.
