The Indiana Department of Transportation announces that an interchange modification project at the I-69/I-469 south junction, near mile marker 296, is scheduled to begin Monday, June 13, weather permitting.
Drivers will see lane restrictions on I-469 westbound and I-69 southbound near the interchange on Monday, June 13, weather permitting. This phase of construction will be followed by narrow lanes near the interchange and the placement of temporary barrier wall. This will facilitate the extension of the ramp lane from I-469 westbound to I-69 southbound, which will allow for safer merging onto I-69.
Later this summer, INDOT contractors will resurface approximately five miles of I-69, between mile marker 295 and mile marker 300, as well as install a pipe liner near the interchange.
A construction zone speed limit of 55 mph will be strictly enforced and INDOT reminds drivers to use caution and consider worker safety when driving through an active work zone.
Work on the I-469/I-69 interchange, the I-69 resurface and pipe liner installation is expected to last through late fall. The $3.1 million project also includes the installation of traffic signals on Airport Expressway/Lower Huntington Road at the I-69 southbound entrance and exit ramps.
