The Indiana Department of Transportation will break ground Wednesday morning on a portion of the state's massive Major Moves 2020 project. This $67 million round of construction involves adding travel lanes, repaving roads and improving bridges along parts of I-65 in southeast Indiana.

The event will include INDOT Commissioner Brandye Hendrickson and take place at Ivy Tech Community College in Sellersburg. Crews will work on the roads and overpasses on a section of the interstate one mile north of State Road 60 to 2.8 miles south of State Road 160.

The widening will result in three lanes and new "mainline superstructures" and bridge widening at Memphis Road, Perry Crossing, Muddy Fork and Old State Road 311.

E & B Paving in Clarksville is the primary contractor for the state-funded project.

Statewide, the travel-lane additions through the Major Moves 2020 initiative are valued at $400 million.
