Work on Indiana highways, interstates to halt at noon today for holiday travel

Motorists will still face lane restrictions in some areas

While the Indiana Department of Transportation has placed a moratorium starting at noon today on all road work, motorists will still face single-lane traffic restrictions in some areas.

One-lane travel will remain on Interstate 70 bridges over Sugar Creek and Clear Creek near the West Terre Haute exit for Old U.S. 40. Then going east, single-lane restrictions will remain on Interstate 70 just east of U.S. 41 and at the intersection of Indiana 46/U.S. 40.

Workers have removed barrels and barricades to the safest extent possible at the intersection of Indiana 59 and Interstate 70, allowing two-lane traffic, said INDOT spokeswoman Debbie Calder.

“Where we can, we are removing barriers, but some lane restrictions will remain on larger projects that cannot be safely opened to traffic for the weekend,” Calder said.

East- and west-bound traffic along U.S. 40 through Brazil will also be limited to one lane through the Fourth of July holiday weekend. Road work will resume Monday morning.

INDOT maintains a traveler information Web page that includes updates on state roads, U.S. highways and interstates. Motorists can learn about traffic conditions, road closures, construction information and crashes by going to or calling 1-800-261-ROAD (7623).
