ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. (WFFT) – The Indiana Department of Transportation announced that a new traffic signal is scheduled for activation at the interchange of Interstate 469 and U.S. Route 24 in Allen County on Thursday weather permitting.
On Thursday, drivers traveling through the U.S. 24 and I-469 southbound ramps will encounter the new signal.
Upon completion of the new ramp, work will begin on new loop ramps for:
• I-469 northbound to Rose Avenue
• U.S. 24 eastbound to I-469 northbound.
The signal work is part of a $11.8 million project, which began in the spring.
The finished project will consist of new ramps to allow a more free-flowing movement at the interchange.
Currently, contractors are working to construct a new ramp for northbound I-469 to eastbound U.S. 24 traffic.
INDOT says drivers can expect lane closures and lane shifts on both I-469 and U.S. 24 in the area of the interchange throughout the two-year project.
INDOT reminds drivers to use caution when traveling through any active construction zone.
A reduced speed limit will be in effect and strictly enforced.
The project is scheduled to be completed in late 2020, weather permitting.
