INDOT says that I-65 Northbound and I-70 Eastbound may be opened before the Monday morning work rush. Workers confirmed that the Virginia Avenue bridge beam can be repaired using readily available materials. Fabricators are working today to cut steel plates that will be spliced onto the damaged sections.
Parts of the interstate were closed Friday afternoon after a truck struck the overpass, damaging its steel beams.
I-70 Eastbound traffic is currently being rerouted to I-65 at the South Split. I-65 Northbound traffic is diverted to I-70 Westbound.
