[INDOT] I-69 Improvements Begin Next Week at SR 37/116th St Interchange
Start Date: 4/19/2012
End Date: 4/19/2012
Entry Description

Operation Indy Commute
to Improve I-69

At State Road 37,
116th Street Interchange

Nighttime Lane Restrictions
to Begin Next Week


FISHERS, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) expects work to begin next week to open up I-69 commuting bottlenecks at the 116th Street and State Road 37 exits as part of the Operation Indy Commute project.

Milestone Contractors of Columbus, Indiana will begin placing construction signs this week under an $18.1 million construction contract.  Beginning on or after Monday, April 23, crews will begin nighttime lane restrictions on northbound I-69 and SR 37 to place pavement and widen the northbound outside shoulder.  These nighttime restrictions will take place Monday through Saturday between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. and are expected to continue through mid-June. 

Construction in 2012 will focus on I-69 near the 116th Street/SR 37 interchange and the northbound entrance and exit ramps.  Work will resume in 2013 on the southbound interchange area and adding lanes to I-69 between I-465 and 116th Street.

2012 improvements to the current configuration include:

  • A new flyover ramp to carry two lanes of northbound traffic from I-69 to SR 37.
  • I-69 near the 116th Street/SR 37 interchange will be restriped to allow three lanes to exit and three lanes to continue north on I-69.
  • For traffic exiting I-69, there will be a three-lane split so that two lanes of traffic will continue onto northbound SR 37 and two lanes of traffic will exit at 116th Street.
  • There will be three lanes of ramp traffic north of 116th Street.  Traffic entering I-69 will stay to the right and enter north of the new SR 37 overpass, eliminating weaving patterns for traffic on 116th Street travelling to I-69 or SR 37.

Starting in June, construction will restrict northbound and southbound I-69 near the 116th Street/SR 37 interchange to two lanes in each direction.  The northbound I-69 ramp to 116th Street and SR 37 will also be limited to one lane.  Road and ramp restrictions are scheduled to end in November.

The Operation Indy Commute project is an initiative by INDOT to strategically eliminate recurring commuting bottlenecks on I-69 in Marion and Hamilton Counties.  The program is modeled after successful, quick-turnaround traffic flow improvements built in other states under the Federal Highway Administration’s Localized Bottleneck Reduction Program.  For more information on Operation Indy Commute, visit
