Areas of I-69 will close to fill potholes
UPDATE: INDOT says the weather prevented them from starting Monday, and they now plan to start on Tuesday if the weather cooperates.
ANDERSON, Ind. – Weather permitting, Indiana Department of Transportation will be out Tuesday to permanently fill potholes on portions of I-69 between Anderson and Daleville.
The repairs will be broken up into four sections. There will be lane closures in each section while repairs are taking place.
The southbound lanes of I-69 from mile markers 222 to 227 will be the first section to be affected. The left lane will be closed first while workers fill potholes. Once complete, the right lane will then be closed for repairs.
Crews will work during the day and overnight if weather allows, but are scheduled to be off the roads during peak rush hours.
The whole stretch of I-69 (mile markers 217 to 245) will be patrolled by a maintenance crew 24/7. This crew will temporarily fill any potholes that may open up before crews can permanently patch them.
The roadwork is expected to continue throughout the week. Drivers are reminded to slow down when workers on the road and obey the posted speed limit of 45 miles per hour.
