Revive I-70 Improvements
Revive I-70 will reduce congestion, improve traffic flow, and improve safety along the corridor. The 20+ mile corridor stretches from west of Cambridge City to the Indiana/Ohio state line.
The project is expected to include added travel lanes, interchange improvements, bridge improvements, pavement replacement and the replacement of drainage structures. Improvements are expected for the 40 bridges in the project area, including widening all bridges.
Significant changes are being identified for the I-70 and US 40 interchange. Modifications are also expected at the I-70 and US 35/Williamsburg Pike interchange. The meetings will include more information regarding anticipated improvements at each location.
