Dear All,

Below is the latest information from INDOT (Indiana Department of Transportation) about construction that is going on throughout Marion County on our interstates.  Around Indianapolis we have full closures, lane restrictions, and ramp closures.  Please take time to look at what is going on and plan accordingly.  Remember, even if you do not drive on the interstate itself, traffic is affected on other roads as many people take alternate routes.  On the interstates watch for slowed or even stopped traffic and obey work zone speed limits.

Hope this information is useful.  Please feel free to forward it to others not only in our area, but throughout Marion County or to those who may be visiting or passing through.

Have a great weekend!

Weekend Work: Construction around Marion County

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Department of Transportation is asking drivers to plan ahead for another full weekend of construction in Marion County.

Contractors will be working to repair winter damage and improve pavement conditions in five different zones around Indianapolis interstates.

Drivers are encourage to plan ahead this weekend and find alternate routes. In addition, they are reminded to pay attention, drive distraction free and slow down in work zones.

Indiana State Police and the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department will be patrolling work zones and ticketing drivers for speeding, reckless driving and driving distracted.

INDOT crews and Hoosier Helpers will be present on the interstates to make sure drivers are aware of slowing traffic and upcoming work zones.
