CLOVERDALE -- The resurfacing project on Interstate 70 will cause the closure of the eastbound ramps at U.S. 231 over the next few days.
The ramp work will begin today and continue through early next week.
The closures will allow for the milling and resurfacing of the two eastbound ramps. Each ramp will be closed twice. Crews plan the following schedule of closures:
* Eastbound I-70 off ramp to U.S. 231, 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 22 through 4 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 23 and 7 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday, Aug 25
* U.S. 231 ramp onto eastbound I-70, 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 23 through 11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 24 and 8:30 a.m. Monday, Aug. 25 through 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 27
Work on the westbound ramps will take place at a later date.
This project on I-70 will resurface the interstate from U.S. 231 to Little Point. The job was awarded to Rieth-Riley Construction for $10.49 million.
The entire project is scheduled for completion in November of this year.
The work schedule is subject to change in the event of inclement weather. INDOT reminds drivers to use caution and consider worker safety when driving through a construction zone.
