Construction Alert

A 15-mile stretch of I-69 in DeKalb and Steuben Counties is set for resurfacing and bridge work as part of a major project set to begin this weekend.  It’s expected to be completed late this year.

Starting Saturday, April 6, weather permitting, motorists can expect lane restrictions on I-69 between mile marker 334 in DeKalb County and mile marker 350 in Steuben County so contractors can begin asphalt resurfacing work.

Also during the month of April, contractors plan to begin the bridge deck overlay on I-69 over the Norfolk Southern Railroad track in DeKalb County, .55 miles south of U.S. 6.

In late April, contractors will begin work on the bridge deck overlay on I-69 over West Fox Lake Road, 1.80 miles south of U.S. 20 in Steuben County. Work on the resurface and two bridges south of U.S. 20 are expected to be completed by late August, weather permitting.

Later this spring, contractors will begin work on the C.R. 200 W bridge and the S.R. 127 bridge. In the fall, following the resurface work, contractors will begin work on the Lake George Road bridge. Work on all bridges is expected to be completed by late October, weather permitting.

INDOT reminds drivers to use caution when traveling through any active construction zone. A reduced speed limit will be in effect and strictly enforced.
