The Indiana Department of Transportation plans to close the southbound Interstate 65 offramp to State Road 11 at Exit 55 (Seymour/Jonesville exit) for 30 days, starting Wednesday.
This will allow INDOT’s contractor to pour new concrete pavement and install weigh-in-motion scales within the ramp area.
Motorists are advised to continue along I-65 south to U.S. 50 at Seymour, and then travel U.S. 50 west to Broadway Street to circumvent the closure.
Work at the offramp is part of a $6,951,000 design-build weigh station project that combines weigh-in-motion sensing locations with facilities for certified scales and covered examinations. Construction of those I-65 facilities is 1.4 miles north of U.S. 50 at Seymour.
Rieth-Riley is the state’s prime contractor.
