Bridge Project on I-69 Starts Monday Near State Road 332 / McGalliard Road

30-day ramp closures scheduled to begin in late May

Construction contractors plan to close the right lanes of northbound and southbound Interstate 69 for up to three weeks starting on or after Monday, May 8 as work begins on a $1.7 million bridge construction contract at Pleasant Run Creek, which is immediately south of the State Road 332/McGalliard Road (Exit 241) interchange.

During the continuous three-week lane closure, HIS Constructors will rebuild and strengthen the interstate shoulders. This will to allow for two lanes of traffic in each direction to be shifted and remain open during most of the project — except for overnight lane closures.

Motorists are encouraged to consider alternate routes to avoid the expected traffic backups. Electronic message signs will be used to alert interstate drivers of the lane closure and slow traffic ahead.

Traffic during construction

Multiple phases will be required to maintain interstate traffic during construction. Motorists can expect temporary traffic lane shifts, median crossovers and single-lane closures in each direction of I-69. All work zone traffic configuration changes will be announced in advance. Lane closures for future construction phases will be scheduled between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. All work is expected to be complete in October.
