HENDRICKS COUNTY, Ind.- The Indiana Department of Transportation announce the I-70 project will move into a new maintenance of traffic phase on Monday, July 6 from just west of State Road 267 near Clarks Creek to the Ronald Reagan Parkway. Motorists will be shifted into the eastbound side of the interstate with three lanes for westbound and two lanes for eastbound travel. The on ramp from S.R. 267 to I-70 eastbound will be closed. The official detour for this ramp closure follows S.R. 267 to U.S. 40 to I-465. This is scheduled for a 120 day closure with an incentive for the contractor to complete earlier.
