Construction to close I-65 lanes near Austin exit

Indiana Department of Transportation is closing single lanes on Interstate 65 between mile markers 33.5 and 38.5 this week on both sides of Austin.

Inside I-65 lanes — both northbound and southbound — currently are closed to allow INDOT’s contractor to complete operations on the $54.7 million design/build project between Scottsburg and Seymour.

John R. Jurgensen Co., the state’s contractor, has crews working in median and shoulder areas along the north-south highway.

This INDOT project has renovated 21 lane miles of pavement and rehabilitated 20 bridges between State Road 56 in Scott County and U.S. 50 in Jackson County.
