I-65 Pavement Repair Project (Stansifer Avenue - Old SR 311)
Indiana Department of Transportation officials met with contractor representatives on May 10th at the Seymour District offices to review plans for a $2 million pavement restoration project along six lanes of Interstate 65 between Stansifer Avenue at Jeffersonville and Old State Road 311 at Sellersburg. Work is expected to begin in late-June.
Milestone Contractors, Indiana’s contractor, is charged with full and partial depth concrete pavement repairs along the seven mile stretch of north-south highway—immediately south of the $67 million pavement replacement and added travel lanes project on I-65 between S.R. 311 and Memphis Road which is in its second year of construction.
Phase I operations will close I-65 right lanes in both directions for pavement removal at identified sites, concrete patches, joint repairs and drainage enhancements. A number of pavement issues are will be resolved near the Lewis & Clark interchange.
Phase II operations are tentatively scheduled to begin after Labor Day with I-65 left lane closures for pavement patching and joint repairs. In addition to travel lanes, a ramp will be closed at the Veterans Parkway interchange.
INDOT’s contract completion date is October 31.
I-65’s traffic count at the project site is 98,130 vehicles per day.
