INDIANAPOLIS — An Indianapolis highway ramp damaged when a tanker carrying jet fuel crashed and exploded will be closed for repairs through Friday, the Indiana Department of Transportation said.
Crews began working Tuesday to repair the ramp from Interstate 70 to I-465 on Indianapolis’ east side, INDOT said on Twitter.
A spokeswoman told The Indianapolis Star that crews are pouring a new bridge deck and repairing approaches and walls.
The ramp is scheduled to reopen by Saturday.
A tanker truck loaded with about 4,000 gallons of jet fuel overturned and exploded on Feb. 20. Burning fuel poured over the pavement and off the bridge.
The driver of the tanker, Jeffrey “Duke” Denman, 59, of Brownsburg, died from his injuries 16 days after the crash. He was driving for Zionsville-based Jet Star Inc.
