LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- More construction crews are expected throughout southern Indiana during the spring and summer seasons.

Indiana transportation officials say their 2017 construction season is now underway and one of the biggest projects will involve repaving I-65 just north of Louisville.

Traffic will be moved to the southbound side for about eight miles in Clark County until mid-summer.

While you navigate the changes, remember to slow down and be aware in construction zones.

“The INDOT people and our contractor’s people, these vests don’t protect you too much from on-going traffic. So we want you to be aware we're out here working and want you to be aware for yourself because most of the people involved in serious accidents are the motorists themselves,” said INDOT’s Harry Maginity.
