Milestone Contractors began patching existing pavement on southbound Interstate 69 between Campus/Southeastern Parkway Exit 210 and State Road 37 Exit 205 June 7.
After patching pavement on I-69 in both directions, crews will then begin paving a new asphalt overlay on the section of the highway. Patching and paving operations require alternating lane restrictions, which will be in place overnight from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Saturday nights.
After existing pavement is resurfaces, crews will rehabilitate interstate bridges and traffic lanes between Exit 205 and Exit 210 will be shifted toward the outside shoulders to begin construction of an additional travel lane in the median.
One lane of I-69 will remain open in each direction at all times and two lanes will remain open during peak daytime travel times. The speed limit on I-69 through the work zone has been reduced to 60 mph and is further reduced to 50 mph when workers are present.
At Exit 210, Milestone has begun mobilizing cranes and other equipment to prepare for construction of the new double-crossover diamond style of interchange for Campus/Southeastern Parkway and I-69. Construction on the interchange is scheduled to begin in after July 4.
