US 42 Westbound Safety Improvements at I-71/75




Monday, Oct. 11 - Tuesday, Oct. 12, weather permitting:


Beginning at midnight Monday night/Tuesday morning, rolling roadblocks will be put into place on I-71/75 northbound just south of the US 42 interchange. Law enforcement will hold traffic in 15-minute increments to allow crews to make repairs to the barrier wall. Traffic delays are expected until approximately 2 a.m., Tuesday morning, when all work is expected to be completed. 


In addition, the entrance ramp to I-71/75 northbound from US 42 eastbound will be CLOSED from midnight Monday night/Tuesday morning through 2 a.m., Tuesday. 


One lane in each direction on I-71/75 is closed within the project area, specifically:


  • The far left lane of travel on I-71/75 northbound is closed for approximately one-quarter mile at the US 42 interchange, and  

  • The far right lane of travel on I-71/75 southbound is closed for approximately one-quarter mile at the US 42 interchange.  

In addition, both shoulders in both directions are closed within the project area.  

Also, traffic on US 42 westbound is shifted to the north while crews work on widening the south side of the roadway. No permanent lane closures on US 42 are anticipated while this work takes place.  


This travel pattern is expected to remain in place through the end of the year.
