I-69 bridge work half way done for year

INDOT will spend this summer and next replacing a pair of bridges on I-69 in DeKalb County.

DEKALB COUNTY, Ind. (WANE) – Construction work along I-69 is half way complete. INDOT is replacing the northbound and southbound bridges over Peckhart Ditch between exits 326 and 329.

A spokesperson with INDOT told NewsChannel 15 that 50 percent of the work is complete on the southbound bridge after three 68-foot concrete beams were set in place.

Motorists will continue to see land shifts on this stretch of the interstate through November when the $3.2 million project winds down for the year.

INDOT will replace the northbound bridge during the 2016 construction season.

The spokesperson reminded drivers to be alert and to follow all construction signs. Many work zones have reduced speed limits or lane restrictions – and all of them have people working within them. Slow down, pay attention and stay safe.
