Highway 65 chip and seal damaging vehicles

Posted: Updated:

Some drivers in western Vanderburgh county tell us they're unhappy with ongoing work on Highway 65.

Drivers say loose gravel and loss of the center line for long sections of the two lane highway make driving difficult.

In some areas sticky black coated rocks are peppering vehicles even at slow speeds.

Other drivers are complaining about rock chips in their windshields tossed up by work trucks.

INDOT says the chips must set in an asphalt emulsion and cure on the road for a day before loose stones can be swept away. Then the road can be sealed.

The entire project should be done by next Friday.

If your vehicle was damaged you can file a tort claim with the state.
