FISHERS, Ind. – Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) contractors plan traffic shifts on Interstate 69 and a restriction on State Road 37 to begin Thursday, March 28 at 8 p.m.

Milestone Contractors, the state’s contractor for the $18 million interchange improvement project at Exit 205, will require alternating single-lane restrictions on both directions of I-69 and southbound S.R. 37 between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. in order to remove and replace pavement markings and shift traffic lanes. Traffic lanes on I-69 will only be shifted slightly away from the median near the 116th Street bridge, but the configuration will remain two lanes in each direction after the shift is finished.

The southbound S.R. 37 ramp will be restricted to a single lane for approximately 1000 feet south of 126th Street during this construction phase. This restriction enables construction of a new bridge to carry southbound S.R. 37 over southbound I-69 traffic exiting to 116th Street, eliminating weaving traffic patterns and improving traffic flow in the ramp system. The restriction is expected to continue until the new bridge opens.
