Speed Limit on I-69 to be Reduced for Paving Activities

HAMILTON/MADISON COUNTIES, Ind.  – Milestone Contractors plans to continue paving an asphalt overlay on I-69 between 116th Street (Exit 205) and SR 38 (Exit 219) on or after March 12. The speed limit on I-69 through the work zone will be reduced to 60 mph and further reduced to 50 mph when workers are present.

Milestone is repairing pavement on about 15 miles of interstate before paving a new asphalt overlay on existing lanes. Motorists may temporarily experience rough pavement after sections are patched and before sections are paved. 

About the project

INDOT and the Indiana Finance Authority (IFA) selected a $92 million proposal from Milestone Contractors and United Consulting to add a travel lane and rehabilitate 15 miles of I-69 in Hamilton and Madison counties as part of Indiana’s Major Moves 2020 program.  The project will:

  • Resurface 15 miles of existing interstate pavement;
  • Rehabilitate existing interstate bridges and drainage structures;
  • Add a third travel lane to the interstate median in each direction from State Road 37 (Exit 205) in Fishers to north of State Road 38 (Exit 214) in Pendleton;
  • Add a southbound lane to the right outside shoulder between the 116th Street entrance ramp and the future 106th Street exit ramp, which is currently under construction;
  • Reconfigure the Campus Parkway interchange (Exit 210) into a double crossover diamond design to improve traffic flow;
  • Widen the Campus Parkway bridge over I-69;
  • Rebuild and lower the State Road 13 (Exit 214) pavement under I-69;
  • Rehabilitate the Brooks School Road and Madison County Road 650W bridges over I-69

Details about the project can be found at http://www.in.gov/indot/3440.htm. Construction is anticipated to be complete by the end of 2017. Updates about construction schedules will be announced as work progresses.
