FISHERS, Ind. – Contractors for the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) plan overnight lane restrictions on both Operation Indy Commute I-69 projects.
Milestone Contractors, the contractor for the $18 million interchange improvement project at Exit 205, plans a right lane restriction Wednesday night and a left lane restriction Thursday night on southbound I-69 from north of the State Road 37 flyover to south of 116th Street. Alternating lane restrictions are planned for Wednesday and Thursday nights on the southbound S.R. 37 collector-distributor to I-69 and 116th Street.
Rieth-Riley Construction, the contractor for the $11 million added lanes project between I-465 and 116th Street, plans alternating lane restrictions each night through October between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. on northbound and southbound I-69 between I-465 and 116th Street.
Rieth-Riley is constructing an additional southbound lane on I-69 between 116th Street and I-465 and auxiliary lanes connecting interchange ramps between 116th, 96th and 82nd streets. The added lanes are expected to be open to traffic this year.
Operation Indy Commute is an initiative to strategically eliminate recurring commuting bottlenecks on I-69 in Marion and Hamilton counties between I-465 and Exit 205. A separate project addressing congestion at the south side I-465 and I-65 interchange is expected to begin soon.
