I-69 lanes shifting next week between Exits 210 & 219

News UpdateStarting next week, Milestone Contractors plans to shift Interstate 69 traffic lanes between Campus Parkway (Exit 210) and State Road 38 (Exit 219).  Two lanes in both directions will be shifted toward the right shoulder to accommodate construction of a third lane in the median.

Traffic lanes between Exit 205 and Exit 210 are currently in this work zone configuration.  Signs direct large trucks to use the left lane while traffic is shifted toward the right shoulder through the work zone.

Modifying lane markings for the traffic shift will require various alternating lane closures between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.  After lanes are shifted, subsequent overnight lane closures will be needed to place temporary concrete barrier and install entrance and exit routes for construction trucks.

Motorists should watch for construction trucks entering and exiting the roadway, keep a safe following distance and be alert for slowing traffic ahead.

The speed limit is reduced to 60 mph and further reduced to 50 mph when workers are present.  Speed detection and LED display signs are installed in the work zone to alert motorists driving at unsafe speeds.  Indiana State Police are patrolling the work zone to promote public safety and compliance with traffic laws.
