TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) - Indiana highway officials say crews are on pace to open a new bypass around Terre Haute by late December.

State highway department spokeswoman Debbie Calder tells the (Terre Haute) Tribune-Star (https://bit.ly/2fCath5 ) that paving operations will continue seven days a week on the four-lane Indiana 641 bypass until it is completed.

The bypass running about 6 miles to link Interstate 70 and U.S. 41 around the city’s southeast side has been in the works for 13 years and beset by numerous delays.

Calder says plans are to open the full bypass to traffic in mid to late December. She says some construction work will remain, which might require daytime lane restrictions.
