Weekend Work: Construction Around Marion County

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Department of Transportation will be out in full force this weekend as the construction season winds down.

Contractors will be in five different locations around Marion County repairing winter damage by strengthening bridges and extending the life of pavement. 

Maintenance crews will also be out working to repair barrier wall, guardrails, clearing drains and fixing lights. 

Drivers are encouraged to plan their routes ahead of time and use local routes when they can. In construction zones, please slow down and don’t drive distracted. Drivers are also reminded to add extra time to get to weekend destinations.

Indiana State Police and the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department will be patrolling work zones and ticketing drivers for speeding and reckless/distracted driving.  INDOT crews and Hoosier Helpers will be present on the interstates to make sure drivers are aware of slowing traffic and upcoming work zones. 

Construction work is weather dependent in some cases.
