Update published at 7:30 p.m.:

The Indiana Department of Transportation has issued updated information on the repaving project which will continue in July in Lawrenceburg an Greendale.

Dave O'Mara Contractor Inc. crews will focus work next week on U.S. 50 beginning at Hollywood Casino and moving east toward I-275. Night time lane closures are scheduled to begin at approximately 7:00 p.m. throughout the week beginning Monday, July 8. Lanes will reopen by 6:00 a.m. the following mornings.

INDOT says the roadwork is expected to continue through the weekend July 13 and 14, with lane closures in effect from 7:00 p.m. on Friday, July 12 and during the following days through 6:00 a.m. on Monday, July 15.

Crews will alternate directions until paving is complete in mid-August. The week night work schedule of 7:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. will remain in effect, with continuous work taking place from 7:00 p.m. Friday to 6:00 a.m. Monday on weekends. The overall project is expected to be complete, including new pavement markings, reflectors and signal work, by late October.

If you plan on traveling U.S. 50 in Lawrenceburg and Greendale during the lane closures, you should probably expect delays.

The work will happen on this schedule if the weather permits, INDOT says.
