Entry Description

Improvements Coming to State Road 64 and State Road 65 Intersection

Roadway construction to begin on/after May 1

 

GIBSON COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) recently awarded a contract to improve the intersection of State Road 64 and State Road 65 south.  Blankenberger Brothers, Inc. of Cynthiana, Indiana won the contract with a low bid of $1.2 million.

Construction on the intersection will include a dedicated left turn lane for westbound S.R. 64, dedicated right turn lane for northbound S.R. 65, increasing the right turn lane for eastbound S.R. 64, reduction of the super-elevated curve and a new stop light.

Currently the contractor estimates construction to begin on or after May 1.  During construction motorists will encounter narrowed lanes of 10-feet in width using concrete barrier walls and reduced speed limits of 40 MPH.  There will be multiple phases of construction causing for differing lane restrictions.  The installation of the new traffic signal will be in the last phases of construction.  Law enforcement will monitor the work zone to ensure the safety of motorist and workers at the project site.

The project is estimated to be substantially complete by December 1 of this year with all work being completed by May 1, 2015.

INDOT urges motorists to slow down and use caution as they encounter work zones. Drivers in Southwest Indiana can monitor road closures, road conditions, and traffic alerts at any time via INDOT’s TrafficWise Traveler Information Service, http://www.trafficwise.in.gov.
