Interstate issues again force temporary closure of I-70 near Greenfield

HANCOCK COUNTY, Ind. — A stretch of I-70 east of Greenfield continues to have problems for the second day in a row.

On Saturday afternoon, INDOT was called to check on reports of several potholes that were in the eastbound lanes of I-70, just east of State Road 9.

Upon arrival, they discovered that the damage to the roadway was a bit more extensive than first through and additional work would be needed.

After a nearly six-hours closure, the interstate was re-opened Saturday.

However, traffic broke down the materials used for repairs overnight.

Sunday morning, INDOT had to again close the east bound lanes of I-70 at State Road 9.

All east bound traffic is being diverted off at that interchange and is asked to travel south to US-40, and then take US-40 east to State Road 109, where they can then go north to reconnect with I-70.

INDOT is hoping for repairs to be completed by early Sunday afternoon.
