Work on I-70 in Hendricks Co. Wrapping Up for the Season

HENDRICKS COUNTY, Ind. — Good news for those who rely on I-70 in Hendricks County.

I-70 eastbound lanes are scheduled to reopen Wednesday, Dec. 8 during the overnight hours, INDOT said Tuesday. During this time, the State Road 267 on-ramp to I-70 eastbound will open.

The work is dependent upon the weather, INDOT said.

Once the traffic switch has occurred, the contractor will remove the temporary lane markings that eastbound traffic was using and will remove the concrete barrier wall. This work is expected to last through Sunday, Dec. 12.

Workers have been rebuilding the eastbound and westbound lanes of I-70 from one-half mile west of SR 267 to Ronald Reagan Parkway and patching the interstate from just west of State Road 267 to State Road 39. The project is expected to be completed early next summer.
