GREENFIELD — With construction continuing to snarl traffic on Interstate 70, Indianapolis-bound drivers must now dodge orange cones on U.S. 40 as well.
Westbound commuters should plan for a slightly longer morning drive in the coming weeks due to lane restrictions now that a $2.3 million resurfacing project is under way.
Resurfacing on U.S. 40 began Monday morning with pavers putting down 1.5 inches of new asphalt in the far north lane. The project, ultimately affecting an 8.6-mile stretch from about one mile west of Ind. 9 to a quarter mile east of Buck Creek, has an Oct. 28 contract completion date with E&B Paving of Anderson. Workers were expected to continue today with paving in the westbound passing lane.
