I-65 Pavement Repairs Begin Next Week

The Indiana Department of Transportation plans to begin lane restrictions on Interstate 65 next week as concrete work begins—weather permitting—as part of a $2,086,611 pavement restoration project that will eventually extend from Stansifer Avenue to Exit 9/Sellersburg.

Milestone, Indiana’s contractor, will begin replacing bridge approaches at the Lewis and Clark overpass on Monday (JULY 17). This will require closing southbound I-65’s left lane and left shoulder between Stansifer Avenue and the I-265 interchange. The restrictions begin at 9 p.m. Monday. (JULY 17).

On Tuesday morning, crews will begin cleaning and sealing bridge joints to prevent water intrusion into the pavement’s subbase. I-65’s left lane restriction will continue through day- and nighttime hours.

Next weekend, a second southbound left lane will be closed to expedite repair and maintenance operations.

In addition to replacing bridge approaches and sealing joints, partial- and full-depth concrete patches will be made as needed within the project limits. Drainage issues will also be addressed. This work will progress northward from near Stanisfer Avenue during this phase of operations.

INDOT’s contract completion date is October 31.

I-65’s traffic count at the project site is 98,130 vehicles per day.

I-65 Pavement Repair Project (Stansifer Avenue - Old SR 311)

Indiana Department of Transportation officials met with contractor representatives  on May 10th at the Seymour District offices to review plans for a $2 million pavement restoration project along six lanes of Interstate 65 between Stansifer Avenue at Jeffersonville and Old State Road 311 at Sellersburg. Work is expected to begin in late-June.

Milestone Contractors, Indiana’s contractor, is charged with full and partial depth concrete pavement repairs along the seven mile stretch of north-south highway—immediately south of the $67 million pavement replacement and added travel lanes project on I-65 between S.R. 311 and Memphis Road which is in its second year of construction.

Phase I operations will close I-65 right lanes in both directions for pavement removal at identified sites, concrete patches, joint repairs and drainage enhancements. A number of pavement issues are will be resolved near the Lewis & Clark interchange.

Phase II operations are tentatively scheduled to begin after Labor Day with I-65 left lane closures for pavement patching and joint repairs. In addition to travel lanes, a ramp will be closed at the Veterans Parkway interchange.

INDOT’s contract completion date is October 31.

I-65’s traffic count at the project site is 98,130 vehicles per day.
