Entry Description

Operation Indy Commute – I-69
Contract Adds Traffic Lanes
Between Fishers and I-465

FISHERS, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is awarding a contract to Rieth-Riley Construction Company to add travel lanes on Interstate 69 between 116th Street and I-465.

This second Operation Indy Commute – I-69 contract will rebuild the median shoulder to add a southbound travel lane between 116th Street and I-465.  The contract also calls for Rieth-Riley to construct auxiliary lanes to connect interchange ramps between 82nd, 96th and 116th Streets.

Moveable barrier wall will be used during construction to restrict traffic lanes during non-peak hours.  Between I-465 and the 116th Street/SR 37 interchange, I-69 northbound will have four lanes and southbound will have at least three lanes during peak traffic hours.

The Goshen, Indiana company’s $11 million bid was the lowest of four competitors.  Rieth-Riley will coordinate all construction activities with the ongoing interchange improvement project at Exit 205.  Both contracts are expected to be complete by the end of 2013.

The first Operation Indy Commute – I-69 project started last spring at the northbound Exit 205 to 116th Street and State Road 37.  Improvements to the northbound exit configuration and a new two-lane flyover ramp to State Road 37 are expected to be complete before improvements to the southbound side of the interchange begin this spring.

INDOT plans to present details and updates to the public at an Operation Indy Commute – I-69 project open house on Monday, February 25 at the Fishers Train Station.  Project team members will be available to answer questions from 5 to 7:30 p.m., and a formal presentation beginning at 6 p.m. will outline the project schedule—including one temporary ramp closure to expect during the 2013 construction season.

The Operation Indy Commute project is an initiative by INDOT to strategically eliminate recurring commuting bottlenecks on I-69 in Marion and Hamilton Counties.  The program is modeled after successful, quick-turnaround traffic flow improvements built in other states under the Federal Highway Administration’s Localized Bottleneck Reduction Program.  For more information on Operation Indy Commute, and to sign up to receive email updates about the project from INDOT, visit www.indycommute.indot.in.gov.
