Traffic shift happening on or after Oct. 3 for I-65/State Road 267 interchange project

BOONE COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces a shift in traffic at the State Road 267/I-65 interchange on or after Monday night, October 3 and into Tuesday morning, October 4. This will allow crews to begin the final phase of the ongoing interchange modification project, near Whitestown, weather permitting. This will move traffic into the permanent traffic pattern.

There will only be one permanent lane open for at least six weeks. This will allow crews to complete all of the required curb work. Right now, weather permitting, the full Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI) will be open to traffic in mid to late November. 

This project was awarded to E & B Paving for $62.8 million. The project also includes building a new interchange on I-65 at Boone County Road 550 South. The contract completion date is set for December of 2022.

A DDI is a type of interchange in which the two directions of traffic on a non-highway road cross to the opposite side on both sides of a bridge. It is unusual in that it requires traffic on the highway overpass to briefly drive on the opposite side of the road from what is customary. When entering the DDI, drivers cross over to the left side of the bridge, guided by signals, signs and pavement markings. DDIs are designed to be safer, more efficient and more cost effective than traditional diamond interchanges.

INDOT reminds drivers to use caution and consider worker safety when driving through a construction zone.
