DEKALB, STEUBEN COUNTIES, Ind. (ADAMS) – The Indiana Department of Transportation says that traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction on I-69 beginning on or after Monday, April 29, weather permitting. The restrictions on I-69 will allow contractors to complete bridge maintenance on multiple bridges in DeKalb and Steuben counties.
Contractors plan to begin work on the C.R. 27 bridge over I-69 on Monday, April 29, weather permitting. Lane restrictions, in both directions on I-69, will be in place between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. with no restrictions during daytime hours. The bridge work will also result in the closure of C.R. 27 between C.R. 34 and C.R. 32 for up to 20 calendar days.
Additionally, work on the I-69 bridge over the Northeastern Indiana Railroad tracks, just north of S.R. 4 in Steuben County, is expected to begin mid-May. Contractors will complete a bridge deck overlay on this bridge during daytime hours with lane restrictions in both directions.
Drivers should be prepared for stopped traffic while the contractor works. INDOT reminds drivers to use caution and consider worker safety when driving through an active construction zone.
