Northbound Route 65 will close to traffic from 6 p.m. Friday night through 6 a.m. Monday morning as crews conduct painting on the bridge that carries traffic from Third Avenue (Route 1065) to southbound Route 65 in Freedom.
All northbound traffic will be detoured.
• Northbound Route 65 traffic will take the Freedom exit
• Follow Third Avenue back to the northbound Route 65 on-ramp
• End detour
Additionally, southbound Route 65 traffic will be restricted to a single 10-foot, 6-inch lane during the entire weekend. Third Avenue will also be restricted to 10-foot, 6-inch lanes.
Four additional weekend closures are necessary to complete the bridge paintingoperation.
This $20.21 million roadway project includes milling and resurfacing, concrete pavement patching, drainage and guiderail updates, ramp reconstruction, curb and sidewalk work, bridge and retaining wall preservation, sign structure maintenance and signal improvements. The overall project will conclude in late October 2017.
