CLINTON COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - If you plan to travel on Interstate 65 between Lafayette and Frankfort in the next few weeks, you may want to give yourself some extra time.
The resurfacing project on the southbound lanes of I-65, just north of State Road 28, is causing major traffic issues.
INDOT Spokeswoman Debbie Calder said crews will be working overnight, from 8 p.m. until noon, Monday through Friday.
In order to avoid congestion, Calder recommends drivers merge as soon as they can.
"When you see the signs out there in the construction zone to merge, please don't wait until the last minute to merge, because that tends to cause a lot of the backups," said Calder. "If they can merge early, everybody will get through there a little safer, and a little quicker."
Calder said drivers can also use U.S. 52 as an alternate route.
The southbound lanes of 65 will be completed this fall. The northbound lanes will be worked on next spring. The entire project is set to be complete June 30, 2014.
