Two inside (left) lanes and shoulder of I- 65 southbound will be closed just south of the I-459 entrance ramps leading onto I-65 southbound, for concrete pavement repairs. The I-65 southbound outside (right) lane will remain open to traffic.
Work in this area has been scheduled during this weekend due to the repairs that require the two I-65 southbound inside (left) thru traffic lanes to be closed, and because the extended time required to remove the deteriorated concrete pavement
Anyone planning to travel along southbound I-65 is advised to consider using U.S. 31 southbound as an alternate route detour. The pavement work is expected to cause major delays along I-65 southbound and the southbound ramps merging from I-459 onto I-65 southbound.
