Previous Phases:

Phase 1A (June 2023)

In order to maintain traffic flow during the duration of the project, the southbound work between mile marker 104.7 and mile marker 110.7 began on Monday, June 19. This work included pavement repairs, milling of the existing shoulder rumble strips, and the installation of blister lanes. The blister lanes (temporary emergency lanes) will serve as emergency pull-offs for motorists, as no shoulder will be present during the project. 

Traffic has been reduced to 2 lanes through the work zone in each direction. 

Northbound Phase 1B (June 2023) 

A barrier wall is to be installed southbound in advance of switching northbound traffic to the southbound lanes, which is anticipated to occur on Friday, July 7. 

Southbound will be utilizing the slow lane and outside shoulder.

Nightly lane closures from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. will reduce I-65 southbound to one-lane. 

Northbound Phase 1C (July 2023)
