Ind. 32 ramp at 65 to reopen Friday

The Ind. 32 ramp entering Interstate 65 north is scheduled to reopen on Friday, Oct. 5.

It was closed Thursday, Sept. 26, to allow the contractor to make safety improvements. The acceleration lane onto the interstate is being lengthened, and the paving is scheduled to take place Wednesday, Oct. 3, and Thursday, Oct. 4,  weather permitting.

The project on I-65 will add an additional lane in each direction and reconstruct the existing lanes of I-65 from six tenths of a mile north of Ind. 32 to one half mile south of County Road 100 East. This project also includes rebuilding the Ind. 39 bridge over I-65 and the I-65 bridge over Prairie Creek and rehabilitating the bridge over Lafayette Avenue.

The project is scheduled to be completed in July.
