INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Indiana Department of Transportation road crews will be focusing on seven different highway work zones this weekend as contractors continue to repair winter damage.

Drivers are encouraged to plan ahead for delays or find an alternate route if their travels take them through a work zone.

Indiana State Police and Indianapolis Metro Police will be patrolling work zones and ticketing drivers for speeding and distracted driving, while INDOT crews and Hoosier Helpers will be keeping drivers aware of slowing traffic and upcoming work zones.
