FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Contractors hired by the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) installed and activated a new traffic signal on Lower Huntington Road at the southbound I-69 ramps on Thursday.
The signal is designed to improve traffic flow from I-69 southbound to Lower Huntington Road, with the goal of improving safety and increasing mobility in the area. The signal installation is part of a larger I-469/I-69 interchange modification project which added an acceleration lane to the I-469 westbound ramp to I-69 southbound, according to a press release.
Southbound I-69 ramp lanes, as well as Lower Huntington Road, were restricted as contractor crews installed the signal components. INDOT reminded drivers in the press release to use caution and pay attention when driving through any active construction zone.
The $3.1 million project also included the resurfacing of roughly 5 miles of I-69.
