I-70 westbound to close for two nights beginning next Tuesday
CLOVERDALE – Interstate 70 westbound in Putnam County will close at U.S. 231 (Exit 41) beginning on Tuesday, Sept. 22 and continuing Wednesday, Sept. 23.
The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) said the closure will be from 11 p.m. through 5 a.m. daily.
Traffic will be diverted down the off-ramp, across U.S. 231, and back up the on-ramp for I-70 westbound.
The traffic signal at the interchange will be operated manually by a signal technician to keep traffic flowing.
The purpose for this closure is for the contractor to tie in new pavement.
This project was awarded to Force Construction Co. for $6.6 million. The I-70 bridges over U.S. 231 at Exit 41 will be rebuilt. Construction is expected to be completed by late fall of next year.
