Entry Description

Crews Paving on Southbound I-69

Overnight Restrictions to I-465 and Binford Boulevard

 

INDIANAPOLIS – Paving scheduled to resume on southbound I-69 near I-465 last night was cancelled due to rain. Contractors for the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) plan to continue work tonight—weather permitting. Beginning at 8 p.m., crews will begin lane restrictions until 6 a.m. Two or more lanes may be restricted after 10 p.m.

 

Tonight and Wednesday night, crews will restrict the three left lanes of southbound I-69 near the split to I-465 and Binford Boulevard. Traffic will not be able to access southbound Binford Boulevard from southbound I-69 after approximately 10 p.m. Motorists will be detoured onto westbound I-465 to exit at Allisonville Road and return eastbound on I-465 to access southbound Binford Boulevard.

 

On Thursday night, crews plan to restrict the right lanes of southbound I-69 near the split to I-465 and Binford Boulevard. Traffic will not be able to access westbound I-465 from southbound I-69 after approximately 10 p.m. Dynamic message signs will direct motorists southbound on I-465 to 56th Street (Exit 40) to return northbound and access westbound I-465. At the same time, the ramp from 82nd Street to southbound I-69 will also be closed.

 

Rieth-Riley Construction is also currently building auxiliary lanes along southbound I-69 to connect between ramps at 116th Street and 96th Street as well as 96th Street and 82nd Street.

 

Drivers are advised to be cautious and practice safe habits in highway work zones. Follow speed limits, maintain safe distances from other vehicles and avoid all distractions—including cell phones. For information on INDOT work zones and highway restrictions, go to TrafficWise.in.gov or call toll-free 800-261-ROAD (7623).

 

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 recurring commuting bottlenecks by allowing traffic traveling from one interchange ramp to the next to avoid unnecessarily merging with mainline interstate traffic.

 

A separate 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. For more information about Operation Indy Commute, visit www.IndyCommute.indot.in.gov.
