The major pavement preservation project on Interstate 70 (I-70) is finishing up ahead of schedule. This week there will be brief intermittent traffic restrictions while clean-up is taking place.
This asphalt resurfacing project on I-70 from the Clay/Putnam County line to State Road 267 is part of Gov. Mitch Daniels' Major Moves highway program. In March, the Indiana General Assembly passed landmark funding legislation to significantly upgrade the state's highways.
Major Moves fully funds more than 200 new construction and 200 major highway preservation projects across Indiana over the next 10 years. It unlocks economic opportunities for Hoosiers and will leave a legacy for Indiana to be the global leader in distribution and logistics.
Construction on this section of I-70 was originally schedule for completion on Nov. 17, 2006, but is wrapping up this week.
