POSEY COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces lane restrictions for Interstate 64 in the Poseyville and Griffin areas for a bridge rehabilitation project.
Beginning on or around Monday, May 16, contractors will begin restricting the westbound lanes of I-64 from just west of State Road 69 to Just east of S.R. 69 for cleaning, bridge deck sealing and rehabilitation. Work will be on the bridges spanning the Black River, Black River Overflow and Big Bayou River.
Workers will begin by restricting the westbound travelling lane throughout the project limits. Restrictions are expected to shift to the westbound passing lane within a few weeks, and then switch to the eastbound lanes in mid to late June. Traffic shifts are subject to weather conditions; rain and other inclement weather could cause delays.
During this project, lanes will be restricted to 11 feet with just over two feet of shoulder clearance. Wide loads should find an alternate route using the nearest state roads. Work on this project is expected to last until the middle of August depending upon weather conditions. INDOT urges drivers to slow down and stay alert near crews.
