Delays likely Sunday morning on part of I-69 in northeastern Indiana

DEKALB CO., Ind. (WPTA21) – Drivers should expect slow-going at times on I-69 in DeKalb County on Sunday as contractors remove and replace power lines.

A series of rolling slow-downs will take place between mile marker 317 (Union Chapel Road) and mile marker 329 (S.R. 8) from 7-10 a.m.

The project will also require the temporary closure of the following ramps:

  • Auburn Rest Park ramp to northbound I-69
  • S.R. 11A to southbound I-69
  • S.R. 8 to southbound I-69

The slow-downs, which will take vehicles down to 10 mph or below, will create traffic voids to allow for the safety of drivers and workers over the highway. Drivers should be aware of slowed or stopped traffic in the area and are cautioned not to proceed past law enforcement officers until after they have completely cleared the travel lane.

Electronic message boards will alert motorists of the rolling slowdown. Drivers may wish to seek an alternate route.
