Patching continues on I-65 in Clark, Scott and Jackson Counties

Patching work will continue over the next few weeks on I-65 between Memphis and Seymour in Clark, Scott and Jackson Counties (MM 16 to MM 49).

Crews plan to begin asphalt patching on Monday (Nov. 16), which will extend through late November. Motorists can expect lane closures up to five miles in length Monday through Thursday, weather permitting. No work is planned during the Thanksgiving holiday.

INDOT is utilizing queue trucks with warning lights and signage to alert drivers of slowed and/or stopped traffic ahead. Delays will be possible, especially during peak travel times. Drivers should slow down and use extra caution in and near construction zones.

Construction in Seymour

Current construction in and around Seymour includes US 50, which includes four phases. Work on both the eastbound and westbound lanes will rotate with a projected completion date of late 2021. The ramps for Interstate 65 will return to the “pre-construction” location when things are complete. The end result of US 50 construction will be four lanes of traffic plus a median with left turn lanes. Indiana Department of Transportation is in charge of the project.

Burkart Bypass South is in full swing. Phase 1 of the Burkart Bypass will connect the current Burkart Boulevard to South O’Brien Street, taking drivers from US 50, south of Silgan Plastics. A roundabout has been added at South O’Brien Street and County Road 340N. Phase 2 of Burkart Bypass will travel from South O’Brien Street through Freeman Field to a roundabout at Airport Road. Both Phase 1 and Phase 2 should be completed in late 2021. An additional roundabout will be installed on Indiana 11 near Goecker Building Supply/True Value.
