GRANT COUNTY, Ind. (WPTA21) - Drivers travelling from the Fort Wayne area toward Indianapolis will experience lane closures and slow-downs now through the fall as work takes place on highway crossover bridges.
The lane closures are happening between Muncie Pike and Exit 264 in both the north and southbound lanes.
Crews will be building median crossover bridges ahead of a bridge deck replacement over Walnut Creek and a bridge deck overlay over C.R. 700 South.
The alternating lane closures will be in place Saturday through Thursday while the crossovers are built but not on Fridays due to traffic volume.
Once the median crossover bridges are complete, all four lanes of I-69 will be open to traffic. Traffic will alternate using the median crossovers depending on where the contractor is working.
Drivers are advised to use caution, look out for work crews and be ready to slow down as they drive through Grant County.
