Traffic patterns to shift near S.R. 46 bridge in Vigo County
The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces I-70 traffic will shift back into the original westbound lanes this evening, weather permitting. At that time motorists will begin utilizing the new westbound exit ramp. This ramp is located just west of the State Road 46 bridge.
On Thursday, traffic will be shifted back into the original eastbound lanes from the present location.
The S.R. 641 contract was awarded to Beaty Construction, Inc. from Boggstown for $46.8 million. This is the last section of the bypass to be constructed and it runs from just south of Moyer Road to the I-70 interchange. The S.R. 641 project includes the construction of a new four-lane, full access control roadway connecting U.S. 41 southeast of Terre Haute to I-70 east of the city. The entire bypass should be open to traffic late this year. The first section of the S.R. 641 bypass opened in October of 2010, it takes motorists from U.S. 41 to McDaniel Road.
INDOT reminds drivers to use caution and consider worker safety when driving through a construction zone.
