 – The District Four Department of Highways office in Elizabethtown announces the re-opening of Interstate 65 southbound to three lanes at MP 97 – MP 103 on Monday, November 7, 2005. After construction on the bridge deck and resurfacing approximately 5 miles of the interstate, I-65 will re-open the newly constructed southbound lanes to traffic at approximately 10 am, weather permitting. 

“Motorists won’t have to worry about pot holes or uneven pavement.  They can enjoy a nice smooth ride while traveling this section of the interstate.  Contractors are a couple of weeks ahead of schedule. Team work and mother nature has been the major contributor in moving this project along,” said District Four Chief District Engineer Gary Raymer.   

Northbound traffic will be reduced to one lane of traffic on Tuesday, November 8, from 7 pm - 5 am to remove barrier walls.  Motorists are urged to use caution in the area while traffic is being shifted from the current northbound to the newly surfaced southbound.

Contractors will wrap up their winter construction season in the next couple of weeks and will resume in the spring to complete the $1.8 million construction project on Interstate 65.
