Contractors Removing State Road 37 Flyover

Expect Overnight Lane Restrictions on Interstate 69

FISHERS, Ind. – Contractors for the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) plan to continue removal this week of the former northbound I-69 Exit 205 flyover bridge to State Road 37.

 

Motorists should expect single lane restrictions on both directions of I-69 as work to remove the overhead structure resumes Monday, May 6. The overnight lane restrictions will begin at 8:00 p.m. and are expected to end by 5 a.m., repeating each night through Friday night (May 10).  The work is weather dependent and schedules are subject to change.

 

Northbound traffic has been shifted from the former single-lane bridge to the new two-lane bridge. However, the bridge will remain restricted to a single lane for the safety of workers and motorists while contractors remove the older bridge and finish construction of the new entrance ramp to northbound I-69 from 116th Street.

 

Milestone Contractors, the state’s contractor for the $18 million interchange improvement project at Exit 205, expects to complete all improvements to the northbound side of the interchange this spring. Northbound improvements include:

  • The new flyover ramp to carry two lanes of northbound traffic from I-69 to SR 37.
  • I-69 near the 116th Street/SR 37 interchange (Exit 205) will be restriped to allow three lanes to exit and three lanes to continue northbound on I-69.
  • For the three lanes exiting I-69, the center lane will split so that two lanes will continue toward SR 37 and two lanes will exit to 116th Street.
  • There will be three collector-distributor lanes of ramp traffic north of 116th Street.  Traffic from 116th Street entering northbound I-69 will stay to the right and follow a new ramp north of the new SR 37 overpass.

 

Construction has started on the southbound side of the interchange, and all work is expected to be complete by the end of this year. Southbound SR 37 is restricted to a single lane between 126th Street and I-69 as contractors construct a new bridge that will carry southbound SR 37 over southbound I-69 traffic exiting to 116th Street, intended to eliminate weaving traffic patterns and improve traffic flow. The restriction is expected to continue until the new bridge opens later this summer.

 

The southbound I-69 exit to 116th Street is expected to close in early June for no more than 90 days. The closure will allow contractors to expedite construction of the new southbound configuration. An exact date for this closure will be announced as soon as possible. The official signed detour will direct traffic to the 96th Street interchange and return north to 116th Street.
