Construction on I-69 in Steuben County to begin Saturday

STEUBEN CO., Ind. (ADAMS) – The Indiana Department of Transportation says a tentative timeline for a contract on I-69 through Steuben County has been set/ Work on the project, which includes 15 miles of asphalt resurface on I-69 as well as several bridge projects, is scheduled to begin or after Saturday, April 6, weather permitting.

During the 2019 construction season, contractors will work in following areas:

Asphalt resurface from US 6 to 1.12 miles north of US 20
Bridge deck overlay on the I-69 bridge over Lake George Road
Bridge deck overlay on the I-69 bridge over S.R. 127
Bridge deck overlay on the I-69 bridge over C.R. 200 W
Bridge deck overlay on the I-69 bridge over Fox Lake Road
Bridge deck overlay on the I-69 bridge over Norfolk Southern Railroad tracks in DeKalb County
On or after Saturday, April 6, weather permitting, motorists can expect lane restrictions on I-69 between mile markers 334 to 350 in Steuben County to allow INDOT contractors to begin the asphalt resurface work. Also during the month of April, contractors plan to begin the bridge deck overlay on I-69 over the Norfolk Southern Railroad track in DeKalb County, .55 miles south of U.S. 6.

In late April, contractors will begin work on the bridge deck overlay on I-69 over West Fox Lake Road, 1.80 miles south of U.S. 20. Work on the resurface and two bridges south of U.S. 20 are expected to be completed by late August, weather permitting.

Later this spring, contractors will begin work on the C.R. 200 W bridge and the S.R. 127 bridge. In the fall, following the resurface work, contractors will begin work on the Lake George Road bridge. Work on all bridges is expected to be completed by late October, weather permitting.
