The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces

There will be several nights next week of periodic 20-30 minute closures of I-80/94, between I-65 and Ind. 53 (Broadway), as crews set beams for the new Martin Luther King Drive Bridge, the Indiana Department of Transportation said.

The closures are necessary to ensure driver safety as the massive beams are set.

The 20-30 minute closures for all eastbound lanes of I-80/94 will take place overnight Monday, June 25, and Tuesday, June 26, between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.

Closures for all westbound lanes will take place overnight Wednesday, June 27, and Thursday, June 28, between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.

In addition, the northbound I-65 off ramp onto I-80/94 westbound will be closed during overnight work hours on Wednesday and Thursday. A detour will take northbound traffic on I-65 to I-80/94 eastbound, to Ind. 51 (Ripley Street), and back to I-80/94 westbound.

INDOT reminds drivers to use caution and consider worker safety when driving through a construction zone.
