Crews to work through weekend to repave section of I-69

Indiana

Significant progress is being made by road crews resurfacing a 14-mile stretch of I-69 north of Indianapolis that is riddled with potholes. 

The condition of the road between mile markers 220 and 234 had gotten so bad that the speed limit was dropped to 45 mph in that stretch.

Crews are currently working to repave the northbound lanes and they’ll be working 21 hours each day through the weekend; only suspending operations from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. when traffic is the heaviest.  

The goal is to reach the 234 mile marker by the end of Monday.  The crews will then switch to the southbound lanes and begin paving on that side of the interstate.

Motorists are urged to watch out for slowed or stopped traffic.
