Weekend Work: Construction Around Marion County

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Department of Transportation is reminding drivers to be aware in construction zones across Marion County.

INDOT will have construction crews in five different locations around Indianapolis. They will be working to repair winter damage by extending the life of bridges and 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.
