[INDOT - Northeast] Daytime Rolling Slowdowns on I-69 near Mile 304 on Thursday, August 8, and Friday, August 9
Start Date: 8/8/2013Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Date: 8/9/2013End Time: 1:00 PM
Entry Description
ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces rolling slowdowns of traffic on southbound I-69 will take place today, Thursday, August 8, between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., near mile 304. The slowdowns are to accommodate a concrete pour on the Covington Road Bridge over I-69 at this location. Tomorrow, Friday, August 9, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., northbound I-69 will experience rolling slowdowns in this area, as well.

Additionally, due to the concrete pours, the inside lanes in both direction on I-69 will be closed. The outer two lanes in each direction will remain open.

During the rolling slowdowns, traffic on I-69 in the affected direction will be intermittently slowed to 10 mph. The Allen County Sheriff’s Department will assist with the rolling slowdowns, which may last up to 20 minutes each. Message boards will advise I-69 traffic in advance of the slowdowns.

Motorists may wish to select alternate routes and/or plan accordingly for possible traffic delays on southbound I-69 today between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., and on northbound I-69 tomorrow between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. An additional, smaller concrete pour on the Covington Road Bridge will take place Monday, August 12, but will not affect traffic on I-69 in either direction.

The Covington Road bridge work includes bridge deck replacement and widening. The work will entail removing the existing deck and railing down to the bridge beams; constructing wider bridge piers in the median of I-69 and along the outside shoulders of northbound and southbound I-69; and installing additional new bridge beams for a wider deck. The wider deck will allow for wider shoulders and additional width to accommodate the proposed Covington Road Trail, crossing over I-69. The adjacent portion of Covington Road work is part of the bridge contract. It will involve improvements at the Covington Road / Dicke Road intersection, including the installation of a new traffic signal.

The project was awarded to Primco based on the low bid of $2.4 million. The entire project is scheduled to be complete in the late fall of 2013.
