INDOT announces Marion County weekend road construction projects

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) has announced lane restrictions and ramp closures for the weekend beginning Friday, October 11.

INDOT said construction crews will be out in five different work zones throughout the weekend to repair winter damage, weather dependent.

Projects will include the resurfacing roadways, strengthening bridges, repairing barrier walls and guardrails, clearing drains and fixing lights.

INDOT said drivers should plan ahead and find an alternate route, and are reminded to watch for slow vehicles and leave plenty of time to slow down before a construction zone.

Indiana State Police and the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department will be patrolling work zones and ticketing drivers for speeding and reckless/distracted driving.
