I-65 Lane Closures, Seymour to Scottsburg


SOUTHEAST, Ind.—Construction activities along Interstate 65 at the State Road 256 underpass proved problematic for vehicles merging southbound onto I-65 from westbound S.R. 256’s on-ramp last night—prompting Indiana Department of Transportation officials to close the ramp to traffic. This closure could extend through the end of the work week at 1 p.m. Friday. The eastbound S.R. 256 ramp onto southbound I-65 remains open.

Motorists traveling westbound S.R. 256 are advised to use U.S. Highway 31 as an alternate route.

Crews for the John Jurgensen Company, the state’s contractor, are saw cutting sections of pavement and pouring concrete patches in the right lane of southbound I-65 at the S.R. 256 interchange. Haul trucks and construction equipment at the work site are obstructing visibility for vehicles attempting to merge onto the north-south interstate from the S.R. 256 ramp.

Meanwhile, lane closures continue this week at four locations on I-65 between Seymour and Scottsburg:
• Northbound right lane closed at the 33.0 mile marker—underdrain installation and patching
• Southbound right lane closed at the 32.0 mile marker—concrete patches and transitions
• Southbound left lane closed at the 42.5 mile marker—milling and paving
• Southbound right lane closed at the 47.5 mile marker--concrete transition at U.S. 31
