(Richmond, IN)--The construction schedule on the ramps on I-70 at the state line has been sped up as businesses there loose thousands of dollars. A survey of four hotels at that interchange conducted from the 19th to the 22nd of this month showed that those businesses were down a total of $21,000 from their normal revenue over those nights. The Shell station recently announced reduced hours and layoffs. Now, State Senator Jeff Raatz has worked with INDOT to finish the project quicker. Crews will now be working 16-hour days. The work is now expected to be done this Friday, but that’s dependent on weather.
