Entry Description

Traffic Shifting This Week to Finish New I-69 Lanes

 

FISHERS – Contractors for the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) plan to shift southbound Interstate 69 traffic this week to resume final work on the Operation Indy Commute I-69 project to add lanes between 116th Street and I-465.

 

Rieth-Riley Construction, INDOT’s contractor for the $11 million project, will be adding auxiliary lanes along southbound I-69 to connect between ramps at 116th Street and 96th Street as well as 96th Street and 82nd Street.

 

Beginning tonight at 8 p.m., contractors will begin lane restrictions on southbound I-69 between 116th and 96th streets to shift all four lanes to the left. Contractors plan to shift lanes between 96th and 82nd streets on Thursday night. Once lanes are shifted, crews will require nightly right lane restrictions to install temporary concrete barrier wall along the southbound right shoulder. Weather permitting, this preliminary work is expected to be complete within a week, and contractors will begin building the new lanes.

 

All four lanes of southbound I-69 will remain open during peak traffic times. All lane restrictions will be scheduled for weeknights and weekends. Weeknight lane restrictions are expected to end before 6 a.m., and the new auxiliary lanes are expected to open to traffic in June.

 

Last year, Rieth-Riley constructed a new southbound travel lane between 116th Street and I-465 to add capacity and improve traffic flow. The contractor also built northbound auxiliary lanes connecting interchange ramps at 82nd, 96th and 116th streets. The auxiliary lanes are intended to improve traffic flow and strategically alleviate bottlenecks by allowing traffic traveling from one interchange ramp to the next to avoid unnecessarily merging with mainline interstate traffic.

 

A separate $18 million contract made capacity and configuration improvements to the I-69 Exit 205 interchange at State Road 37 and 116th Street that are now open to traffic.
