Overnight closures on I-70 in Hendricks County for setting of bridge beams begins next Week

HENDRICKS COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces I-70 will have two overnight closures at the State Road 39 interchange between the hours of 12:01 a.m. through 5 a.m. each night. This is for the contractor to set bridge beams on the new S.R. 39 southbound bridge. Traffic will be detoured up the ramp across S.R. 39 and back onto the interstate utilizing the ramps. Weather permitting, the schedule currently follows;

  • Wednesday, November 4 closing I-70 westbound
  • Thursday, November 5 closing I-70 eastbound

Milestone Contractors LP was awarded the $16.2 million contract. This project will redesign this interchange to a Diverging Diamond Interchange. The interchange modification project is being built to add traffic capacity and relieve congestion for the current and future needs as development expands in this area.  This interchange is scheduled to open to traffic in the fall of 2021.
