INDOT has announced the following road work on SR 44:

The SR 44/I-65 interchange reconstruction shall begin April 17 and be completed around the first week of August. A 60-day road closure with official detour at SR 44 over Sugar Creek Overflow (located 3.37 miles East of SR 44/I-65 interchange) has an anticipated start date of June 12 and continues through Aug. 15 at the latest.

The official detour will utilize I-65, I-465, and I-74. The unofficial detour (for local traffic) will be North CR 900 W, Range Rd., North CR 875 W, and to West CR 50 N.

The hot mix asphalt (HMA) patching and resurfacing work along SR 44 from East of the Sugar Creek Overflow bridge to 1.6 miles West of SR 9 South Junction will start on April 5 and be completed by end of May. This same work along SR 44 from East of the Interchange reconstruction to West of the Sugar Creek Overflow bridge will start around April 14 and end in early September. HMA operations will be completed under lane closures with flaggers, but it is important to note that some of this work does overlap the bridge closure with official detour.

The City of Shelbyville will keep residents updated on these closures/restrictions as they are informed by INDOT.

Any questions or concerns regarding the construction, should be directed to INDOT. They can be reached at 1-855-463-6848, visit, or use the INDOT mobile app.
