new 106th Street bridge construction to begin this week

FISHERS, Ind. — Drivers using Interstate 69  this week should get ready for lengthy delays as construction crews will close lanes of I-69 between 82nd Street (Exit 201) and 116th Street (Exit 205) for construction of the new 106th Street interchange.

Crews will be building piers in the median for two new bridges over I-69, which will each carry one direction of traffic on 106th Street.  Crews will also be moving concrete barriers later in the week in preparation for a traffic shift scheduled for next week.

Multiple left lane closures should be expected each night this week between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.  The following schedule is subject to change and will be updated as work progresses:

  • Monday, July 18 – up to 3 lanes of northbound I-69 will be closed
  • Tuesday, July 19 – up to 3 lanes of northbound I-69 will be closed
  • Wednesday, July 20 – up to 3 lanes of northbound I-69 will be closed
  • Thursday, July 21 – up to 3 lanes of northbound and southbound I-69 will be closed
  • Friday, July 22 – up to 3 lanes of northbound and southbound I-69 will be closed

The speed limit near the construction zone will be reduced to 55 mph and may be reduced further to 45 mph when workers are present.  Motorists are advised to pay attention to work zone warning signs, follow posted speed limits and keep a safe following distance from other motorists.
