INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Construction crews plan to temporarily close up to three lanes of northbound Interstate 69 for overnight work next week at the 106th Street interchange bridges being built-in Fishers.

Starting Sunday, Oct. 23, up to three left lanes of northbound I-69 will be closed near mile 204 between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. each weeknight through Thursday night/Friday morning.  Work is dependent on favorable weather, and construction schedules are subject to change.

Additional lane closures are scheduled in the following weeks, and specific closure schedules will be announced as work progresses.

Crews will be removing temporary overhang platforms used during the construction of the bridge decks, pouring concrete walls on the bridges, and painting bridge beams.

Motorists are reminded that the speed limit near the construction zone is reduced to 55 mph and may be reduced further during overnight working hours.  Motorists are advised to pay attention to work zone warning signs, follow posted speed limits, avoid distractions, and drive sensibly near construction zones.  For more information about safe driving in highway construction zones, go to http://www.in.gov/indot/2356.htm.
