10:30 A.M UPDATE: I-65 south remains closed

> SOUTHERN INDIANA — The southbound lanes of Interstate 65 remain closed between the U.S. 31 exit for Edinburgh and Taylorsville (Exit 76) and Memphis (Exit 16). Northbound I-65 is open, but motorists should reduce their speed according to conditions and anticipate delays, according to the Indiana Department of Transportation.

An I-65 crash involving a double-trailer truck near Jonesville is also limiting mobility. As of 10:40 a.m., Bartholomew, Jackson and Scott counties along the I-65 have declared travel watches advising essential travel only.

Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) and Indiana State Police districts in southern Indiana closed portions of I-65 after 9 a.m. this morning due to crashes and low visibility. INDOT continues to plow and treat I-65 southbound as traffic allows in order to open the highway as soon as possible. Drivers play a role in keeping the highways open and safe for other travelers by making room for INDOT’s yellow plow trucks so they may clear the roads.

Strong winds have resulted in blowing snow, reduced visibility and colder temperatures. Local INDOT plow crews will manage the interstates, U.S. highways and state routes to prevent snow from blowing across the highway and sticking. With falling temperatures, salt and other melting agents will have to work harder to lower the temperatures at which the accumulation melts.
