COVINGTON ­— The Indiana Department of Transportation announces temporary restrictions coming to Interstate 74 between C.R. 200E (one mile west of Covington) and C.R. 550W.

Beginning on or after March 4, there will be alternating lane restrictions in both directions to do bridge maintenance work.

Crews will be patching the bridges over the Wabash River.

During the restrictions, there will be 55-mile-per-hour speed limits and width limits of 12 feet.

Work is expected to continue for just over a month, however, all work schedules are weather-permitting and subject to change.

INDOT encourages all drivers to obey the work zone speed limits, drive distraction-free, and be patient while crews are out working.
