Interstate 69 Added Travel Lanes Opening Northeast of Indianapolis

Construction to finish in spring, Next Level project will continue expansion.

Milestone Contractors is opening additional travel lanes on Interstate 69 this week between State Road 37 Exit 205 and State Road 38 Exit 219. I-69 is planned to be open to three lanes in each direction on the heavily traveled stretch of interstate by tomorrow morning (Friday, Dec. 8).

As part of a $92 million design-build contract, Milestone has added a third lane in each direction to the median, repaired and resurfaced existing pavement, and rehabilitated bridges and drainage structures on 15 miles of I-69 in Hamilton and Madison counties. The project also widened and reconfigured the Campus Parkway Exit 210 interchange into a double-crossover diamond configuration, which was opened to traffic this summer.

Construction of an additional auxiliary lane between the 116th Street entrance ramp to I-69 South and the I-69 South Exit 204 ramp to 106th Street will continue through next spring.

I-69 South will be temporarily reduced to two lanes to allow space for the State Road 37 and 116th Street entrance ramps to safely merge while construction continues on the southbound auxiliary lane between the 116th Street and 106th Street ramps.

Crews plan to close lanes on I-69 South and State Road 37 South beginning after 9 a.m. tomorrow (Friday, Dec. 8) to modify pavement markings in the area to establish this winter traffic pattern.
Taking I-69 to the Next Level

INDOT is planning a separate design-build project that will continue adding a third lane in each direction to the median of I-69 between State Road 38 Exit 219 and State Road 109 (Scatterfield Road) Exit 226.

In addition, other improvements will be made to preserve, rehabilitate or replace existing pavement, bridges and drainage structures along all 14-miles of I-69 from State Road 38 to State Road 67 Exit 234.
INDOT anticipates awarding a contract for the project in the spring. Construction is expected to begin in 2018 and last through at least 2019.

Additional information will be provided early next year, and a public meeting will be planned after a design-builder has been selected.
