INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announced continued construction projects around Marion County.

The department said lanes will close in Marion County and along the I-70 corridor before the July 4th holiday weekend, and crews will be off the road by 12 p.m. Friday, July 3 in observance of the holiday.

INDOT said drivers should observe lane and ramp closures throughout the construction zones in Marion County and along the I-70 corridor from I-465 to the Ohio State Line. 

Officials are asking drivers to please plan ahead, find alternate routes and give yourself extra time to travel in construction zones and drive distraction free. 

Motorists in East Central Indiana can monitor road closures, road conditions, and traffic alerts any time through FacebookTwitterCARS 511, or through mobile apps for Apple and Android.

Some of this work is weather dependent and could change.

INDOT Note: These closures are for the next week, not just for this weekend, please pay close attention to the dates.
