Calumet Civil Contractors will begin work after July 4 on a $1.7 million pavement repair and resurfacing contract for Interstate 69 interchange ramps at I-465 and 82nd Street.

Calumet will make full-depth concrete and asphalt repairs before resurfacing pavement on the ramps at the two I-69 interchanges on the northeast side of Indianapolis.

Lane and ramp closures will be required during overnights and weekends throughout construction. Overnight closures may be scheduled between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., and weekend closures may be scheduled to start at 9 p.m. Fridays until 6 a.m.  Mondays.

Specific locations of work and times of closures will be announced in advance. Posted and electronic message signs will be used to notify motorists of closures and detour routes.

Motorists should be alert for workers in the area, avoid distractions and abide by reduced work zone speed limits.

All work on the project is expected to be complete by October.
