Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) contractors have scheduled the expected 14-day closure of the 116th Street loop ramp to northbound I-69 and State Road 37.
Milestone Contractors, the state’s contractor for the $18 million interchange improvement project, plans to close the looping northbound entrance ramp from 116th Street for up to 14 days beginning Monday, October 15 at 12:01 a.m.
Motorists will not be restricted from exiting northbound I-69 to 116th Street or State Road 37. The official signed detour for the ramp closure will follow I-69 south to the 96th Street interchange (Exit 203) and return to I-69 northbound. Sometime after the ramp reopens, access from 116th Street to northbound I-69 is expected to be restricted for up to 60 additional days.
Construction on the northbound side of the interchange started this spring. I-69 is currently restricted to two lanes north of Exit 205 as a new two-lane flyover ramp to State Road 37 is constructed. Milestone is expected to complete the northbound improvements this year and finish southbound work by the end of 2013.
