Traffic stock

CLARK COUNTY — The Indiana Department of Transportation will restrict travel lanes on Interstate 65 beginning tonight, weather permitting, for scheduled maintenance operations at Lincoln and Kennedy bridge toll plazas located just north of the Ohio River.

Tonight and tomorrow, three southbound lanes and the shoulder area of I-65 will close between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. at mile marker 0.2. Traffic will narrow near the Court Avenue entrance ramp to two 11-foot-wide southbound I-65 lanes which will remain open.

A total of 12 overnight lane closures will occur at six tolling locations on the Indiana and Kentucky sides of the Ohio River over the next two weeks. These restrictions are needed to facilitate annual preventative maintenance operations by Kapsch TrafficCom North America. Activities will include inspection and adjustment of overhead equipment at the toll plazas.
