Roads closing for interchange work

The intersection of Collins and Worthsville roads will close for the next three weeks while workers continuing building a new Interstate 65 interchange.

Construction crews will be closing the intersection, which needs to be realigned with the new interchange before the new Worthsville Road exit can be opened, Indiana Department of Transportation spokesman Harry Maginity said.

Officials decided to close the intersection during fall break of nearby Clark-Pleasant schools. The intersection should be reopened on or before Oct. 25, Maginity said.

A similar project was done on the west side of I-65 last year, Maginity said.

The new interchange will have a diverging diamond pattern, which eliminates left turns when trying to get on I-65. The interchange should be open by the end of November, the release said.
