I-65 delays ahead

Motorists on Interstate 65 can expect some delays this week while crews install new bridge beams.

Tonight and Wednesday night, crews will use rolling roadblocks — where traffic is slowed in a certain area so workers can have periods of time to work, according to a news release from the Indiana Department of Transportation.

Beginning at 9 p.m. tonight, police will do six rolling roadblocks while crews install beams under the bridge over Main Street in Greenwood. The roadblocks will begin at Whiteland Road for traffic heading north.

During each roadblock, crews will be setting new beams under the bridge, which are needed as part of the project to widen the interstate between Greenwood and Franklin, the release said.

On Wednesday night, crews will do the same work to the bridge over Hurricane Creek, about 2 miles north of the Franklin exit.

Rolling roadblocks will first be done for southbound traffic, starting at 9 p.m., beginning at the Worthsville Road exit. Later, northbound traffic also will have rolling roadblocks, which will begin at the Franklin exit, the release said.
