County Road 144 east of State Road 37 will soon reopen to drivers in Johnson County.
The road is expected to reopen mid-week when construction workers finish replacing drainage structures beneath it, according to the Indiana Department of Transportation’s weekly update on Interstate 69 progress.
State Road 37 will have single-lane closures each night near its intersection with State Road 144 as workers remove structures from bridge piers. Waverly Road, also known as Old State Road 37, will shift to temporary pavement south of State Road 144, and Huggin Hollow Road will close at Old State Road 37, INDOT officials say.
In Marion County, the Madison Avenue bridge over Interstate 465 is now open to all four lanes of traffic, although motorists should still be wary of workers putting finishing touches on the bridge, INDOT officials say.
The Carson Avenue bridge over I-465 closed Sunday and will remain closed for five months for demolition and rebuilding. Drivers will be able to follow a detour along Keystone Avenue and Thompson Road. During construction, lanes will be closed on I-465 nightly, and work will close and detour certain Interstate 65 ramps between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. each night, INDOT officials say.
Starting Friday evening, there will be a closure of Banta Road and State Road 37 to lower the road in preparation for a future Interstate 69 bridge, INDOT officials say.
In Morgan County, construction crews will open about seven miles of State Road 37 to two lanes in each direction just north of Henderson Ford Road. The posted speed limit for that section will be 55 miles per hour. The road will be limited to one lane in each direction near Myra Lane and Teeters Road for overpass construction. The overpass on Teeters Road should be complete in early August, INDOT officials say.
