Governor Mike Pence is proclaiming March 23-27, 2015 as Work Zone Awareness Week in Indiana. Work Zone Awareness Week marks the ceremonial start to highway construction season and intends to draw awareness to motorist and worker safety.
More than $1.3 billion will be invested in construction projects to build and maintain Indiana’s highways in 2015. As INDOT increases its focus on preservation, drivers will see more work on existing state highway roads and bridges. INDOT’s goal is to maximize both the safety and mobility of motorists and workers while maintaining as much access as possible to businesses, residents and emergency services.
INDOT is dedicated to continuously improving work zone safety for workers and motorists. Last year, 11 people were killed and more than 600 people were injured in Indiana highway work zones. Most of these injuries and deaths are caused by rear-end collisions, following too closely or making improper lane changes.
Beginning on Thursday March 19, lane closures will begin on Burkhardt Road and Virginia Street. These lane closures are part of the Burkhardt – Virginia intersection project. The lane closures that will begin on Thursday are as follows:
Boonville-New Harmony Road will be closed from Petersburg Road to Seib Road for road repair on Wednesday, March 18, 2015 from 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. This roadway will be closed to all but local traffic.
