Overnight lane closures, traffic lane shift on northbound I-69 this week
Milestone Contractors plans overnight lane closures and a traffic lane shift this week on Interstate 69 as construction continues on the I-69 Major Moves 2020 project building an additional travel lane between State Road 37 (Exit 205) and State Road 38 (Exit 219).
On Tuesday and Wednesday nights between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., Milestone plans to close one lane of northbound I-69 in two locations on the 15-mile stretch to move temporary concrete barriers. One lane will remain open during these times.
One lane will be closed between State Road 37 (Exit 205) and Campus Parkway (Exit 210), and one lane will be closed between State Road 13 (Exit 214) and State Road 38 (Exit 219).
On Thursday night between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., Milestone crews plan to shift northbound I-69 traffic lanes to the left between Cumberland Road and the Sand Creek bridge to accommodate construction of a noise barrier. This traffic lane shift will require alternating lane closures between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.

Campus Parkway interchange reconfiguration
Milestone Contractors is also widening the Campus Parkway bridge over I-69 and reconfiguring the Exit 210 interchange into a double-crossover diamond design.
In early May, weather permitting, the Campus Parkway interchange at I-69 will be shifted into a double-crossover diamond configuration, which is intended to improve traffic flow during the remainder of construction of the permanent interchange improvements.

Additional travel lane construction
Two lanes of traffic in each direction of I-69 are currently shifted to accommodate construction of the additional travel lanes. Signs direct large trucks to use the left lane while traffic is shifted toward the right shoulder through the work zone. The speed limit is reduced to 60 mph and further reduced to 50 mph when workers are present.
In addition, other improvements are being made to maintain and preserve existing bridges, pavement, and drainage structures on the 15-mile stretch of interstate.
