FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - The first reconstructed ramp at the interchange of I-469 and U.S. 24 in Allen County is expected to open to traffic on Friday.
Beginning Friday evening, motorists traveling northbound on I-469 to U.S. 24 eastbound will use the newly constructed ramp. The new ramp is part of a two-season, $11.8 million interchange modification project, which began in the spring.
The finished project will consist of new ramps and reconfigurations of the current ramps, to allow a more free-flowing movement at the interchange.
During the 2020 construction season, work will begin on new loop ramps for:
- I-469 northbound to Rose Avenue
- U.S. 24 eastbound to I-469 northbound.
The project is scheduled to be completed in late 2020, weather permitting. The contract was awarded to INDOT contractor Primco for $11.8 million.
