Entry Description

I-70 Traffic Lanes Shifting to Work Zone Configuration

 

HANCOCK COUNTY – Contractors for the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) plan to resume work zone pavement marking tonight on eastbound Interstate 70 between State Road 9 (Exit 104 to Greenfield) and Mt. Comfort Road (Exit 96). Contractors last week shifted both eastbound lanes of traffic toward the south shoulder and expect to finish painting eastbound lane markings tonight between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. One lane of eastbound I-70 will be restricted during the overnight operation.

 

Milestone Contractors, the INDOT contractor for the $15.2 million project, is currently working to install temporary concrete barrier wall that will separate opposing directions of traffic when one lane of westbound traffic is shifted across the median in early April. Repairs to the westbound side of the interstate will begin once the work zone traffic pattern is established.

 

The temporary traffic configuration is very similar to the work zone that was in place last year when Milestone repaired the eastbound side of the highway. This year, one lane of westbound traffic will be directed to a median crossover to share the eastbound side of the highway while repairs are made to the westbound side of the interstate. The contract is scheduled to be complete this summer.

 

Drivers are advised to practice safe habits in highway work zones, such as following work zone speed limits, maintaining safe distances from other vehicles, and avoiding distractions. INDOT partners with the Indiana State Police to provide increased work zones patrols and promote public safety. Motorists are urged to always comply with work zone speed limits, maintain safe distances from other vehicles and avoid distractions to improve safety for both highway workers and motorists.
