The Indiana Department of Transportation says construction will begin next week on the new Interstate 69 interchange at 106th Street in Fishers. The $21 million project aims to reduce congestion in the rapidly-growing area.
INDOT says beginning April 4, Walsh Construction Co., which was awarded the contract earlier this month, will shift northbound and southbound lanes away from the median and reduce lane widths. The existing 106th Street bridge will close on April 11 as crews remove it to make way for two new bridges.
Traffic on 106th Street will be detoured south to 96th Street via Allisonville and Lantern Roads during construction.
When completed, the interchange will feature a two-lane, oval-shaped roundabout on 106th Street over I-69 with ramps two and from both directions of the interstate. The two separate two-lane bridges will each carry one direction of traffic.
The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year. Click here to learn more about the project.
