Weekend Work: Construction Around Marion County Friday, July 19 to Monday, July 22, 2019

INDIANAPOLIS – Contractors for the Indiana Department of Transportation will continue work this weekend on multiple projects to improve pavement conditions and repair winter damage on Indianapolis area interstates.

Motorists should avoid work zones, if possible, by using alternate routes. Delays and slow-moving traffic should be expected in construction areas. Drivers should obey posted work zone speed limits at all times and avoid distractions. Indiana State Police will be patrolling and ticketing drivers for speeding and reckless and distracted driving. INDOT crews and Hoosier Helper drivers will have a presence throughout the weekend to monitor traffic and warn drivers of upcoming lane closures.

Also, in work zones where full closures are not in effect, select entrance ramps will be closed to reduce interstate congestion and delays.

Construction work is weather dependent in some cases. Follow @INDOTEast on Twitter for the most up-to-date information on schedule changes.
