Indiana Department of Transportation is closing the right lane of westbound Interstate 74 approaching the 154 mile marker. INDOT maintenance crews are setting barrels and placing signs east of Batesville this afternoon to route traffic around a section of failed pavement. Single-lane traffic will be maintained for approximately half a mile in the westbound left lane.
Plans are being made at this time for scheduling emergency repairs at the I-74 site where a slab of concrete pavement has dropped several inches below grade. Meanwhile, lane restrictions will continue until repairs can be finalized.
