Rolling slow downs begin Wednesday night on I-65 at Johnson, Shelby County line

Indiana Department of Transportation contractor HIS Constructors plans to conduct rolling slow downs two nights this week at County Line Road (C.R. 800 E.) over I-65 in southeastern Johnson County.

 

Traffic will be stopped for up to 20 minutes at a time between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. for hydrodemolition of bridge decks over the interstate. Southbound traffic on I-65 will be stopped Wednesday, April 7, and northbound traffic will be stopped Thursday, April 8, weather permitting.

 

The bridges are located approximately three miles north of S.R. 252 near MM 83. Drivers should consider allowing extra time to reach their destinations or using an alternate route to avoid delays.

 

This work is part of a $800,000 bridge rehabilitation contract that was awarded last fall. County Line Road is scheduled to remain closed over I-65 through early August. The official detour follows C.R. 550 S. to C.R. 700 E. to C.R. 400 S.

 

Motorists are reminded to slow down, use extra caution, and drive distraction-free in and near all work zones. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
