The U.S. 30-U.S. 33 interchange will begin an interchange modification Friday.

Construction crews will construct new ramps designed to improve safety and increase the amount of traffic merging from U.S. 33 to U.S. 30, the Indiana Department of Transportation said in a statement today.

The ramps will be made to increase the weaving distance when merging, it said, and the finished project will have 16-foot ramps with 8 feet of paved shoulders, along with an acceleration lane.

There will be lane shifts and restrictions in the eastbound lanes of U.S. 30 during construction.

Later in the summer, the southbound lanes of U.S. 33 will be one lane through the interchange while crews remove the old ramp one lane at a time. U.S. 30 east to U.S. 33 north will be closed until the ramps are removed.

INDOT expects motorists to be driving south on U.S. 33 to east U.S. 30 on part of the new ramp by early fall.
