FISHERS, Ind. (September 10,2015)- INDOT is hosting a special meeting for drivers in Hamilton County Thursday night.
The department wants feedback on its plan to build a new I-69 interchange at 106th Street.
The goal of the project is to reduce congestion on I-69 in Hamilton County.
INDOT says putting a new interchange at 106th Street will improve traffic flow at the already existing interchanges at 96th and 116th Streets.
Funding for the project is coming from INDOT, the city of Fishers, and Hamilton County.
The groups want to build a two lane roundabout at 106th Street over I-69 and ramps to and from the interstate in both directions.
The proposal also calls for removing the existing bridge over I-69 and replacing it with two separate bridges.
INDOT hopes the changes will improve traffic flow and alleviate the stop and go movement that a lot of drivers experience on I-69 in Hamilton County.
“Most of the crashes that are happening currently at 96th or 116th are rear end crashes, the majority of them so we hope to reduce those so we’re improving traffic flow and improving safety,” said Nathan Riggs, INDOT spokesperson.
The Public hearing on Thursday, September 10 starts at 6 p.m. in the auditorium inside Fishers City Hall.
