FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — The Indiana Department of Transportation says an Interstate 69 project in Fort Wayne is finishing up.
INDOT says the reopening of northbound Exit 305A on I-69 is scheduled to reopen by 9 p.m. on Friday.
The northbound Exit 305A was closed in order for it to be realigned with State Road 14/Illinois Road as part of an ongoing interchange modification project.
When the final project is complete, northbound traffic trying to access both east and westbound S.R. 14/Illinois Road via Exit 305 will use the same exit ramp that is controlled by a new traffic light.
Southbound traffic will also use a newly modified ramp that will allow access to both east and westbound S.R. 14/Illinois Road, also controlled by a new traffic light.
With the improvements, officials say motorists using eastbound S.R. 14 will have two new traffic lights and motorists using westbound S.R. 14 will have one new traffic signal.
After reopening, the newly-modified ramps, southbound 305B and northbound 305A, will temporarily only allow for right turns to as for work is done on the project.
The northeast Exit 305B and southwest Exit 305A loop ramps will remain open until the final configuration is complete and will eventually close to traffic and be demolished.
