Repair Work Begins On Wildcat Creek Bridge Over I-65


Indiana Department of Transportation officials say work has begun on an Interstate 65 bridge over Wildcat Creek, in hopes of reopening the road by Thursday.

INDOT spokeswoman Debbie Calder says the steel INDOT had fabricated for the task Tuesday evening arrived on scene early Wednesday afternoon. She says workers will spend the overnight hours installing it. But she says estimates of when on Thursday the northbound lanes of the road might be reopened are still vague.

The road was closed Tuesday after workers noticed unusual shaking during a project to expand the bridge.
