This is an update to the previously published story below.
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) has scheduled what’s called a “rolling slow down” for Thursday, July 10, on I-69 at the Dupont Road Bridge at mile marker 316. That will allow for the movement of a temporary platform for the workers as they overlay the bridge.
Indiana State Police patrols plan to stage a rolling slow down on Thursday, July 10, between the hours of 5 a.m. to 7 a.m. Motorists can expect delays and should use alternate routes if necessary.
The southbound lanes of traffic will be impacted first between 5 a.m. and 6 a.m., with stoppages lasting approximately 5 minutes, with each one spaced 10 to 15 minutes apart.
Northbound lanes of traffic will be impacted between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m., with stoppages lasting approximately 5 minutes, with each spaced 10 to 15 minutes apart.
Inclement weather could postpone these early morning operations.
This work is part of the diverging diamond interchange modification project and is scheduled for completion by late October, 2014.
