Truck hits bridge after project announced

INDIANAPOLIS — A truck struck a low overpass on Interstates 65-70 in downtown Indianapolis one day after Indiana highway officials announced a 90-day closure of the key freeway to lower pavement and prevent future truck strikes.

Frequent truck strikes on seven low bridges over the freeway led the Indiana Department of Transportation to announce Wednesday it would close the key freeway serving downtown Indianapolis for up to 90 days this fall to lower the pavement below seven bridges at the South Split.

Furloughs near at Crane base

CRANE — Officials at southern Indiana's Crane Naval Surface Warfare Center say one-day-a-week unpaid furloughs are about to start for its thousands of civilian workers.

Base officials say the furloughs caused by automatic federal budget cuts will start the week of July 8 and continue through September. The base's nearly 3,100 Navy employees and 800 Army workers will see a 20 percent pay cut during that time.

The American Federation of Government Employees local that represents Crane workers argues the furloughs won't save money and will hurt projects done at the base southwest of Bloomington.
