INDOT awards contract to build new Fishers interchange at I-69
The goal of the project is to decrease traffic congestion at I-69’s 96th and 116th street interchanges, as well as enhance safety and make it possible for drivers to enter 106th Street directly. The project will see the removal of the 106th Street Bridge over I-69. During construction, the overpass will be closed to traffic, and drivers will use a detour on 96th Street via Allisonville and Lantern Roads.
As much as $12 million worth of funding for the project will come from Hamilton County and the City of Fishers. Crews will build a two-lane, oval-shaped roundabout on 106th Street that will span over I-69. They also will build ramps to and from the Interstate in both directions.
Two separate two-lane bridges will be included in the project – one for traffic going in each direction. The westbound bridge will be on the north side of 106th Street and will also feature designated areas for pedestrians.
Specific dates for all phases of construction are expected to be announced soon. The new interchanges, ramps and bridges are expected to be completed and opened for traffic by year’s end.
