News release from INDOT:
Ramp Work Begins Monday on I-69/I-469 Interchange Modification
Expect narrow lanes on I-69 southbound ramp to I-469 eastbound
(June 17, 2016) – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces that ramp work will begin on the I-69 southbound exit ramp to I-469 eastbound, near I-69 mile marker 296, on Monday, June 20, weather permitting.
In preparation for the interchange modification from I-469 westbound to I-69 southbound, contractors will begin widening the I-69 southbound ramp to I-469 eastbound. During this phase of work, the I-69 southbound ramp to I-469 eastbound will be restricted to one 12-foot lane.
Also, on Thursday, June 23, weather permitting, contractors will close the right lane of I-69 southbound, between mile marker 295 and 297.
Later this month, the I-69 southbound ramp to I-469 eastbound will be return to 16-foot wide. At that time, I-69 southbound will be narrowed to two 11-foot lanes between mile marker 295 and 297 to accommodate contractors as they begin to add a new acceleration lane from I-469 westbound to I-69 southbound.
A construction zone speed limit of 55 mph will be strictly enforced. 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.
