Construction begins Monday on I-65 in Indiana near I-265 interchange

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Nearly 100,000 drivers in Indiana can expect delays on Interstate 65, as construction work begins Monday. 

Construction on the interstate begins Monday at 9 p.m. in the area that approaches the Lewis and Clark overpass. This will shut down the left lane on I-65 South between Stansifer Avenue and the I-265 interchange.

Lanes will also be closed for concrete work and pavement restoration the next few months.  It's a $2 million project that will eventually extend from Stansifer Avenue to exit nine in Sellersburg.

The construction is expected to last until the end of October.
