Walesboro to see the start of road improvement project

You will see some delays if you are driving near Walesboro for the next few weeks.

Work is scheduled to get underway today at State Road 58 around the International Drive intersection. Contractors for INDOT will be installing traffic signals at the ramps from State Road 58 to Interstate 65 and at International Drive.

Starting on Wednesday, crews will begin removing old pavement markings on State Road 58 between International Drive and Old Lane Drive. Lanes will be reduced in width while they widen the pavement and build right turn lanes at the Interstate ramps.

Flaggers will be in place while that work goes on, which is expected to take up to six weeks.

INDOT says that this is all part of the $143 million dollar project to improve Interstate 65 between Columbus and Seymour.
