JASPER AND WHITE COUNTIES, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) have announced that a resurfacing project on I-65 will close three ramps for reconstruction beginning on or after Monday, May 8.  These closures are scheduled through the middle of June for this nearly $40 million dollar project.

The ramps that will be closed are:

  •    U.S. 24 (Exit 201) entrance ramp to I-65 southbound
  •    I-65 southbound exit ramp to U.S. 231 (Exit 205)
  •   U.S. 231 (Exit 205) entrance ramp to I-65 northbound

With these ramp closures the remaining open ramps at these two interchanges will be utilized for the detour on I-65.
