Motorists will be shifted into the left lane while contractors patch and rehabilitate the right lane and shoulder area.
During the phase of construction, which is expected to last for six-seven weeks, there will be an 11-foot width restriction in p lace.
The patch and rehabilitation project on I-70 will span through Clay, Putnam, Hendricks and Morgan counties.
The project may have a maximum of three separate five-mile sections with one lane restricted in both the eastbound and westbound lanes continuously. The minimum distance between work zones will be four miles.
The patching portion of the project is should be completed by Nov. 22, and finished next year with permanent pavement markings and grass seedings to be completed by May 18, 2012.
