Walsh Construction Co . plans to close the three left lanes of northbound Interstate 69 between 82nd Street (Exit 201) and 116th Street (Exit 205) starting at 9 p.m. June 1 for construction activities lasting until 6 a.m. June 2 , according to a release from the Indiana Dept. of Transportation.
Crews are building two new bridges over I-69, one for each direction of traffic on 106th Street. Steel piles are being driven into the ground to provide foundational support for the new bridges’ abutments and center piers. People in the area may hear recurring loud impact noises as the pile driving equipment pounds the beams into the ground.
The speed limit near the construction zone at mile marker 204 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 and follow posted speed limits.
