COLUMBUS FIRM OPENS INDY SPLIT EARLY, EARNS BONUS
The I-65 and I-70 split in Indianapolis has opened more than two weeks ahead of schedule. Columbus-based Milestone Contractors, L.P. did the work and will receive a $60,000 per-day performance bonus for the early completion. Late last night Indiana Gov. Mike Pence thanked Hoosiers for their patience and state and private workers for their hard work and diligence. Some incidental sign and pavement-marking work will require lane restrictions in the coming days. Officials say work on the I-70 East Street bridge is planned for next year.
