Single lanes are being closed on Interstate 65 in the area of the Brownstown Road overpass being reconstructed by a contractor of the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT).

It’s all part of the $12 million-plus project to repair and repave nine miles of I-65 in southern Scott and northern Clark counties.

The southbound right lane of I-65 is closed from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. every night through Friday morning, November 13. Mile markers for the closure is from 22.0 to 20.0, but the closure is well-marked, and traffic is squeezed down to one lane well in advance of the closure.

Motorists and truck drivers can expect slow-downs to start fairly soon after the Scottsburg interchange. Back-ups may occur.

The southbound left lane remains open with an 11-foot width restriction.

Everything is scheduled to be back to normal on Friday morning, but rain which occurred Monday night, November 9, and rough weather expected today (Wednesday) may cause changes in that schedule.

North of the Brownstown Rd. overpass, and just a mile south of Scottsburg, an overnight closure will take place in the southbound left lane starting tonight (Wednesday) between mile markers 28.0 and 23.5. This restriction will also be lifted Friday morning.

The southbound right lane will remain open with an 11-foot width restriction.

To avoid all of this construction, persons are welcome to use U.S. Highway 31 southbound to the Henryville access on State Road 160 back to I-65.

Updated information and a map of the closures are available on the INDOT TrafficWise service at indot.carsprogram.org. Roadway information is also available by calling 1-800-261-7623 (ROAD) or 511 from a mobile phone.
