I-65 lane closures planned

Expect lane closures on Interstate 65 this week while crews set up barrier walls.

The closures will be done overnight, between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m., between the Whiteland and Franklin exits, according to a news release from the Indiana Department of Transportation.

The state is planning to close the left lanes on southbound I-65 on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, the left lanes on northbound I-65 are set to close, the release said.

The concrete barrier walls are being installed in the area where crews are working on an $84 million project to add a new lane in each direction of I-65 between Greenwood and Franklin.
