A Word To The Wise: Avoid I-65

To avoid frustration and unexpected delays, Crothers-ville area motorists should continue doing what they have done all summer: avoid driving on I-65 between Scottsburg and Seymour.

Now that entrance and exit ramp work is in process, being able to get on or off the interstate when you want may be even more a matter of delicate timeliness.
