I-74 EB ramp closure extended to Oct. 16 at Exit 169 in Dearborn County

Brookville, IN—The current I-74 EB off-ramp closure at Exit 169 (U.S. 52/Brookville/West Harrison) will be extended to the afternoon of Wednesday, October 16, due to unexpected subgrade conditions. The ramp was scheduled to reopen tomorrow (Oct. 10), but additional work is necessary to remove and replace the deceleration lane at the exit.

Message boards will remain in place alerting drivers of the closure and signed detour route. The detour for the closure is S.R. 1 to S.R. 46 at Exit 164 (S.R. 1/St. Leon/Lawrenceburg) to U.S. 52.

Travelers are urged to slow down and exercise caution in and near the work zone.

Patching will be complete on I-74 from S.R. 101 to the Ohio state line by early November. Milling and paving for the $20.3 million resurfacing project is scheduled to begin in July 2020. All work is weather dependent.
