Ind. 32 ramp to I-65 north shut down


For the Times Sentinel

— The ramp on Indiana 32 entering Interstate 65 north was closed on Monday, Dec. 3, so the Indiana Department of Transportation can reconstruct the ramp.

INDOT says the ramp will be closed for about 10 days.

Reith-Riley Construction Company, Inc. and designer R.W. Armstrong were awarded the $41,455,610 Major Moves design build contract.  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.

This construction project has a reduced speed limit and has been targeted by the Indiana State Police and the Boone County Sheriff’s Office for increased enforcement activities in an effort to reduce speeding in the work zone.
