I-69 Renumbering Begins Northbound at I-465
INDIANAPOLIS (8/6/2012) The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) will begin changing mile marker signs on Interstate 69 next week. Beginning Monday, August 6, mile marker and exit signs will be updated by adding 200 miles to the existing numbers. For example, Exit 0 will become Exit 200; Exit 10 becomes Exit 210, etc.
INDOT will begin at the I-465 interchange and continue on the northbound side of I-69. Some temporary nighttime lane restrictions will be necessary to allow crews to safely modify overhead signs. Drivers should expect alternating lane restrictions between I-465 and Exit 3 to96th Streetduring overnight hours beginning Monday. Updates on lane restrictions will be provided as the work progresses.
All I-69 mile marker signs inIndiana, from I-465 north to theMichiganstate line, will be renumbered to reflect the I-69 expansion in southernIndiana. Exit signs and signs one mile before the exit ramp will display both the new designation and the previous exit number.
INDOT will maintain the dual exit signage for a minimum of three years, through October 2015. Thereafter, the previous exit numbers will no longer be replaced if damaged. These previous numbers will be removed byOctober 1, 2017.
The renumbering is expected to be complete this fall. A new 65-mile section of I-69 betweenEvansvilleand theCraneNavalSurfaceWarfareCenter(NSWC Crane) is expected to open by the end of the year. An additional 27-mile section of I-69 from NSWC Crane toBloomingtonis scheduled to open in 2014.
