INDOT seeks safe holiday travelMay 22, 2020
From Local Sources
The Indiana Department of Transportation is reminding motorists to slow down and travel safely, especially in work zones, during the Memorial Day weekend.
Fewer drivers are expected to hit the road — AAA predicts record low travel volumes with social distancing still in place — but Hoosiers may experience increased traffic in some areas with Indiana residents getting “Back on Track” as some businesses and services reopen.
Last year, the U.S. had the second-highest Memorial Day traffic volume on record: 43 million travelers, according to INDOT.
Much of INDOT’s road construction and maintenance activities are being suspended during the holiday weekend, but a number of restrictions and closures will remain in place due to the long-term nature of some projects.
In southern Indiana, those work zones include: Bridge replacement on U.S. 41 over the White River between Knox and Gibson counties; U.S. 41 NB to I-69 NB ramp closed in Evansville; Lane restrictions on I-69 NB/SB in Greene, Daviess and Vanderburgh counties; Lane restrictions on S.R. 37 and S.R. 39 in Martinsville; Lane restrictions and shifts on I-65 NB/SB between Seymour and Columbus; U.S. 31 closed over I-65 in Jackson County (south of Seymour); S.R. 256 closed between S.R. 203 and U.S. 31 in Scott County; Lane restrictions on I-74 EB/WB between Exit 156 (S.R. 101) and the Ohio state line in Ripley/Dearborn counties.
