CLINTON COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - The orange barrels are gone along Interstate 65 in much of Tippecanoe County. However, drivers will still notice them south of the Dayton exit.

Patching and resurfacing work continues in Tippecanoe, Clinton and Boone Counties. The work runs about three and a half miles south of the Dayton exit to nearly the U.S. 52 exit in Lebanon.

The work also includes bridge improvements.

Crews have been working at night to avoid disrupting traffic and that's something drivers appreciate.

"You just got to keep your attention on the road as far as directions go," said Eric Jordan. "Other than that, it's not too bad. You just got to watch other drivers and be aware."

"There have been cones out. I haven't seen anyone out yet, but there is construction going on," said Deanna Gillis.

An INDOT spokeswoman said the work is expected to be complete this October.

Late Tuesday night, News 18 heard of a crash in that zone, between the Dayton and Frankfort exits in the southbound lanes. Traffic was down to one lane in the area. State police said it was a personal injury crash, but they were still working to assess the extent of any injuries.
