The Indiana Department of Transportation advises there will be one lane closed on I-65 northbound under Swisher Road, just north of the Wabash River Bridge on Monday, July 17 through Wednesday, July 19 from 9 p.m. until approximately 6 a.m., weather permitting. The contractor will be removing half of the Swisher Road bridge deck over I-65.
Traffic is restricted to one 10′ lane and controlled at the bridge with a traffic signal. This work is scheduled to be completed in November of this year.
The project was awarded to Superior Construction for $23.5 million. The work also includes replacing the decks and widening both I-65 northbound and southbound bridges over the Wabash River. Work will begin this year on the substructure and should have minimal impact to traffic. The construction on the Wabash River Bridge is scheduled to be completed in October of 2020.
INDOT reminds motorists to follow the posted work zone speed limit, use caution and consider worker safety when traveling through a construction zone.
