FLOYD COUNTY, Ind. — Indiana Department of Transportation’s contractor will begin patching, widening and installing a new 2-inch modified latex bridge deck overlay on eastbound Interstate 64 at its 3-span bridge over Captain Frank Road next week. Traffic restrictions will begin — weather permitting — Monday night, April 23.
At 8 p.m. Monday, eastbound I-64 over Captain Frank Road — located 0.29 miles east of I-265 — will be restricted to a single lane while concrete barrier wall sections are put in place for traffic control. By 5 a.m. Tuesday, two 11-foot-wide lanes will be open to eastbound motorists at the bridge site. This restriction will remain in effect into early June.
Ragle Inc. of Newburgh is Indiana’s contractor for rehabilitating this 217-foot-long structure at the north edge of New Albany. Work is part of a $3.9 million 4-bridge project that includes westbound I-64 over Captain Frank Road, westbound I-64 over Quarry Road and westbound I-265’s ramp to eastbound I-64.
Repairs and installation of a 3/8-inch polymeric deck overlay at westbound I-265’s ramp to eastbound I-64 have been rescheduled due to weather/temperature delays to occur on the weekend of April 27-30—with a full closure beginning at 8 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Monday.
