HUNTINGTON CO. – Indiana State Police troopers will be shutting down north and southbound lanes of Interstate 69 between the Warren exit (278mm) and the Markle exit (286mm) in Huntington County at approximately 10:00 a.m. today for approximately one hour.  

  • All traffic will be diverted off the interstate at these two exits. 
  • The temporary detour route for all northbound thru-traffic is north on State Road 5, east on US224 to I-69.
  • Temporary detour route for all southbound thru-traffic is west on US224, south on State Road 5 to I-69.
