FISHERS, Ind. (June 17, 2014) — Much to the relief of Hamilton County commuters, contractors for the Indiana Department of Transportation have opened up all new lanes of traffic on I-69 between 116th Street and I-465.

Crews will continue to work overnight from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. this week in order to accomplish final odds and ends, including installing road signs, reflective pavement markers and conducting quality control tests, INDOT said.

INDOT is asking the public to remain aware of road crews and some alternating lane closures during the overnight hours while this work is completed, but said the lanes are open for use during the day.

Commuters are excited to say goodbye to all the orange cones and construction that have become familiar over the past several years.

“Yay!” said Kim Black, who drives on I-69 daily.  “It has been a long time coming.  A lot of people have suffered the consequences, but it’ll be great when it [fully] opens.”
