Bridge construction gets underway on I-469 over Lafayette Center

ALLEN CO., Ind. (ADAMS) – The Indiana Department of Transportation says that lane and shoulder closures are scheduled on I-469 for a bridge replacement project.

That work will be happening between Feighner Road and Exit 2 over Lafayette Center Road.

The left lane and shoulder will be closed in each direction while crews build a median crossover. The speed limit will be reduced to 55 mph in the work zone and there’s a width limit of 16 feet.

Traffic will eventually utilize one lane in each direction in either the eastbound or westbound lanes of I-469, depending on the side crews are working on.

Because of the bridgework, Lafayette Center Road under I-469 will be closed during the project. The on and off-ramps will remain open at the exit at all times. Drivers should use the detour route of Lafayette Center Road, Indianapolis Road, Hamilton Road, Feighner Road, and Tom Worrel Road.

Work is scheduled to start on or after Monday, March 29 and is scheduled to wrap up in late fall. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.

Motorists are reminded to slow down, use caution and drive distraction-free in and near all work zones.
