“We are asking Hoosiers and visitors in the state of Indiana; as you travel through these work zones don’t follow to close and watch your speed and the distracting behaviors,” Sgt. Tony Slocum said.

Crews will be doing of a lot of repaving and pothole patching.

“Of course at some point the roads require maintenance. I don’t have to tell Hoosiers in central Indiana the harsh winter and the impact that had on our road systems. We all want nice roads,” Sgt. Slocum said.

ISP wants drivers to put the distractions down.

They want you to pay attention to the road and the construction workers.

“We don’t want anyone not going home at the end of their shifts. We will have zero tolerance for anyone speeding or unsafe lane movements or any other behavior that would cause a crash in a work zone,” Sgt. Slocum said.

INDOT says some of these projects could be delayed because of rain, but if not all lanes should be back open by Monday morning.
