Warmer Temperatures Allow Work To Continue On I-69 Section 5

Last updated on Wednesday, January 24, 2018

(BLOOMINGTON) - I-69 Section 5 crews will return to work on January 25 at various points in the construction zone as warmer temperatures will allow for bridge and roadway work.

The right lane of westbound SR 46 will be restricted from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for light pole foundation installation.

Between 7 p.m. and midnight, all traffic on the SR 45/2nd Street bridge will be moved to the north side of the bridge to allow crews to work on the south side. The work area is between Liberty Drive to the west and South Basswood Drive to the east. The same number of travel lanes will be maintained in the south configuration.

The right lane of southbound SR 37 from Tapp Road to Fullerton Pike will be closed from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to perform bridge work at Tapp Road West, including completion of the sound wall. This daily closure will continue for the next several weeks.

The left lane of northbound SR 37 from the CSX overpass to SR 46 will be closed from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. to accommodate median drainage work adjacent to the roadway barrier wall. This daily closure is anticipated to be in place for approximately four weeks.

There will be daily left lane closures of both northbound and southbound SR 37 from approximately Kinser Pike to Sample Road for median drainage work.

The inside and outside shoulders of southbound SR 37 between Bryant Creek and Burma Road will be closed through next week to install drainage protection and guardrails.

On Monday, Jan. 29, southbound traffic on SR 37 will be reduced to a single lane south of Burma Road for about 2,000 feet for 60-90 days to allow for the construction of the barrier wall and the Chambers Pike overpass. Temporary concrete barrier will be placed to protect workers. Constructing the bridge and barrier walls this winter will accelerate the project schedule and allow crews to pave access roads in the spring when asphalt plants reopen.

Motorists are urged to exercise caution when driving through these portions of the construction zone, and are reminded that the speed limit remains 45 miles per hour for the entire I-69 Section 5 corridor.
