News release from INDOT:
Updated Lane Restrictions on I-469 Southbound between Exit 29 and Exit 15
Restrictions due to concrete restoration work
(May 19, 2013) – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) Fort Wayne District announces that lane restrictions on southbound I-469, between Exit 29 (Maplecrest Road) and Exit 21 (US 24), for concrete pavement restoration work, will continue until approximately Friday, May 24. The right lane in this area is expected to be restricted until Wednesday, May 22, at which time it will open and the left lane is scheduled to be restricted until end of the day on Friday, May 24.
Additionally, restrictions in the right lane on southbound I-469 between Exit 21 (US 24) and Exit 15 (Tillman Road) will begin Monday, May 20. The lane restrictions in this area are expected to last for about two weeks.
The speed limit along I-469 is reduced to 60 mph in work zones, with temporary speed limits of 45 mph imposed when workers are present, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Arrow boards, cones and barrels will direct traffic as needed while the work is in progress. Motorists may notice periods of time when lane restrictions are enforced, but construction workers are not present. This is due to the curing time required for concrete pavement.
INDOT reminds drivers to use caution and consider worker safety when driving through a construction zone. For the latest news and information about INDOT, visit www.in.gov/indot.
