The I-65 closure is affecting other construction projects in the state. If the bridge doesn't open by INDOT's projected date in mid-September, at least one other interstate project will be pushed back.

INDOT has said the I-65 bridge will reopen in mid-September. But crews are waiting to resurface a section of I-74 in Eastern Montgomery County until then.

INDOT Crawfordsville District spokeswoman Debbie Calder says restrictions that had been in place on I-74 westbound have been lifted to accommodate detour traffic, thus slowing down the reconstruction.

“For the most part, a lot of it has continued, but like this one, it’s going to halt the westbound work until it reopens,” Calder says.

Calder says construction on the eastbound side of I-74 will start Tuesday.
