Plainfield West metro interstate commuters can buckle up for more highway construction delays.

This week, motorists will begin seeing long sections of cone zones for construction along I-70 from the Westside near Plainfield and Indianapolis International Airport nearly to the Wabash River and Illinois state line.

A trio of state contracts, totaling approximately $37.5 million, has been awarded for patching, paving and rehabilitation of bridges on I-70 across the western half of the state.

That will mean sections of the highway up to 5 miles long will be narrowed to one lane in each direction for various periods.

Even though construction crews will work round-the-clock at times, Indiana Department of Transportation officials said the project won't be done until May. But doing it now, before the road deteriorates further, will save time in the long run.

"This work on I-70 is necessary due to the heavy trucks and volume of traffic that we have on this stretch of the interstate," said Alan Plunkett, district deputy commissioner for INDOT. "We have some deterioration of the pavement, and getting this done now doesn't prolong construction over several years."

INDOT is holding a series of public informational meetings this week to provide details about each segment.

The only metro-area session is at 6:30 p.m. today in the Plainfield-Guilford Township Library, 1120 Stafford Road

Preliminary work began Monday to start the metro-area portion of the I-70 repaving that passes through Clay, Putnam, Hendricks and Morgan counties.

Milestone Contractors has a contract for $27.9 million to patch and rehabilitate the highway from Ind. 59 to a location two miles east of the Ind. 267 interchange at Plainfield. That would be roughly between the Ronald Regan/Ameriplex interchange near the airport, west to the I-70 exit to Brazil.

Commuters may try U.S. 40 as an alternate route.
