Lane shifts on I-65 south of Seymour Sunday

SEYMOUR, IN (WAVE) - The Indiana Department of Transportation has announced they will push both lanes of southbound Interstate 65 traffic to the right on Sunday evening, August 18, two miles south of Seymour between mile markers 48.5 and 45.5.

The work is the beginning of the $54.7 million repair and resurfacing project. Drivers can expect lane shifts and restrictions every week until the end of this year's construction season in November.

At 6 p.m. Sunday, August 18, southbound I-65 traffic will be directed into the right lane and onto the right shoulder. Crews will then begin bolstering the inside (left-side) shoulder for future changes in the traffic pattern. At the same time, full-depth concrete patches will be placed and construction of a median crossover (for later traffic switches) will begin.

Southbound traffic will return to normal lanes at 1 p.m. Friday, August 23. This shift in traffic pattern will occur Sunday-Friday for the next several weeks.

Operations may be delayed by inclement weather.

    Realtor warns of rental scams on Craigslist

    Wednesday, October 18 2017 7:25 PM EDT2017-10-18 23:25:51 GMT

    It's hard for many to find affordable rental housing in the Lake Area - which makes those locating here from out of town perhaps even more vulnerable. Realtor Betsy Watkins says in the last couple of weeks three people sent deposit money to a scammer on Craigslist to rent a house on Hackberry Street in Lake Charles. Problem is, the house is for sale, not for rent.
