14 day closure of 116th Street loop ramp to northbound I-69 and SR 37


 Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) contractors have scheduled the expected 14-day closure of the 116th Street loop ramp to northbound I-69 and State Road 37.

Milestone Contractors, the state’s contractor for the $18 million interchange improvement project, plans to close the looping northbound entrance ramp from 116th Street for up to 14 days on or after Monday, October 15.  Motorists will not be restricted from exiting northbound I-69 to 116th Street or State Road 37.  The official signed detour for the ramp closure will follow I-69 south to the 96th Street interchange (Exit 203) and return to I-69 northbound.  Sometime after the ramp reopens, access from 116th Street to northbound I-69 is expected to be restricted for up to 60 additional days.

Milestone plans additional overnight lane restrictions on I-69 at Exit 205 tonight (Thursday, Oct. 4) and Friday.

Milestone will restrict the right lane of northbound I-69 and the left lane of the Exit 205 collector-distributor beginning at 10 p.m. both nights.  Some temporary stoppages of traffic will be necessary after midnight as Milestone relocates two sign trusses over the highway.  The lane restrictions are expected to end before 5 a.m. Friday and Saturday mornings.  The exit ramp to 116th Street and State Road 37 will remain open.

Construction on the northbound side of the interchange started this spring.  I-69 is currently restricted to two lanes north of Exit 205 as a new two-lane flyover ramp to State Road 37 is constructed.  Milestone is expected to complete the northbound improvements this year and finish southbound work by the end of 2013.
