GIBSON COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces a lane restrictions prior to the ramp closure for the U.S. 41 and State Road 64 interchange at Princeton.
Beginning on or around Monday Sept. 24, contractors will begin restricting S.R. 64 to begin building a turn lane in advance of the upcoming paving project for the eastbound S.R. 64 to North Bound U.S. 41 ramp. The turn lane will serve as a part of the detour route for the ramp closure. Motorists will begin to see advance warning signage as early as Sept. 19.
Work on the turn lane is expected to be complete by the beginning of October, with the ramp closure to follow on or around Wednesday Oct. 3. At this time, contractors will activate the temporary traffic signal at this location to begin directing traffic looking to go north on U.S. 41 to the ramp on the north side of the interchange.
Once the ramp is closed, it will remain closed for about two months depending upon weather conditions.
INDOT urges drivers to slow down and stay alert near crews.
