TERRE HAUTE -

Eastbound motorists on Interstate 70 in western Indiana should expect 20-minute closures late Thursday and early Friday.

The Indiana Department of Transportation says 20-minute closures in the eastbound lanes in Vigo County along the Illinois state line will begin at 11 p.m. Thursday and continue until 6 a.m. Friday, weather permitting.

INDOT says crews will be removing the structural steel beams on an overpass located near the 13 mile marker.

The temporary stops will occur in 20-minute increments during construction. INDOT says it will allow traffic to clear out before stopping motorists again.
