Lane on I-265 in New Albany to close for bridge inspection

NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WAVE) – Lanes on Interstate 265 in New Albany will be closed Tuesday after a dump truck hit a bridge.

At 9:30 a.m. the right lane of I-265 will be shut down to allow crews to inspect the bridge at Klerner Lane, according to Indiana State Police.

To keep traffic from entering I-265, the ramp to the eastbound lanes from Grant Line Road will also be blocked.

ISP said the dump truck operator failed to lower the dump cart on Monday and hit the bridge at a high rate of speed.

The amount of time the lanes are expected to be closed has not been released. Drivers in the area should expect delays.
