Potholes continue to cause problems on I-65

TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) – Portions of Interstate 65 continue to be a problem for drivers and road crews. Rain has caused potholes to reappear.

Potholes have been a consistent problem near the 164 mile marker. State police said there have been a number of slide-offs and crashes along the mile-long stretch, some of which were caused by potholes.

INDOT spokesperson Debbie Calder said plans are in place to have the stretch repaved this summer.

“There’s several areas statewide and there are several areas on the I-65 corridor that have been identified as problem areas. We’ll be doing some full depth patching, where we’re actually taking out the pavement, going clear down to the dirt and rebuilding the roadway,” said Calder.

Until the road can be repaved, Calder said crews will continue to monitor and patch the road as best they can.
