Walsh Construction Company plans to close lanes of Interstate 69 this week between 82nd Street (Exit 201) and 116th Street (Exit 205) for construction of the new 106th Street interchange.
Crews will close the left lane of northbound and southbound I-69 on Thursday and Friday nights (10 p.m. to 6 a.m.) to move temporary concrete barriers near 106th Street in preparation for a traffic shift scheduled for next week. Shifting northbound and southbound I-69 traffic lanes to toward the median will allow construction to continue on the end supports of two bridges, which will each carry one direction of traffic on 106th Street over I-69.
Weather permitting, multiple-lane closures in both directions should be expected each night next week as lane markings, signage and temporary concrete barriers are set for the next work zone traffic configuration.
The speed limit near the construction zone is 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.
