Weekend Work: Construction around Marion County

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Department of Transportation encourages motorists to plan ahead for another full weekend of construction in Marion County.

Contractors will be working to repair winter damage, extend the life spans of pavement and bridges, and perform maintenance in five interstate work zones around the Indianapolis metro area. 

To avoid delays and congestion, motorists should consider using local streets rather than interstates. Motorists who do use metro area interstates during the weekend should prepare for delays and congestion.

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.
