Pavement Repair Contract Begins on Interstate 69
MADISON and DELAWARE COUNTIES – Contractors for the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) plan to begin a pavement repair contract on Interstate 69 this weekend. The $715,000 contract will require various weeknight and weekend restrictions to make repairs to sections of concrete and asphalt pavement between State Road 37 and State Road 26.
Weather permitting, E & B Paving plans to remove and replace damaged concrete pavement in the right lane of northbound I-69 between State Road 9/109 (Anderson Exit 226) and State Road 32 (Daleville Exit 234) beginning at 9 p.m. Friday, August 8. This lane will remain closed until Monday, August 11 at 5 a.m. to allow new concrete ample time to cure.
Additional weeknight and weekend restrictions should be expected as contractors make progress on repairs. Work on the contract is expected to be complete by November. For information on INDOT work zones and highway restrictions, go to trafficwise.in.gov or call toll-free 800-261-ROAD (7623).
Motorists are urged to practice safe driving habits, especially in and around work zones. Follow speed limits, maintain safe distances from other vehicles and avoid all distractions—including cell phones. The Indiana Work Zone Safety Law sets steep penalties for driving infractions within highway work zones. INDOT partners with the Indiana State Police to provide increased patrols and promote public safety in work zones. For more information on work zone safety, go to workzonesafety.in.gov.
