Construction to begin on I-469 widening project

ALLEN CO., Ind. (ADAMS) – The Indiana Department of Transportation has announced the beginning of construction to widen a portion of I-469.

On or after March 6, crews will begin working on Clinton Street under I-469. Work will be taking place on the shoulders of Clinton Street.

After the work on Clinton Street begins, crews will begin working on I-469 on the Clinton Street bridge to widen it heading east as well as completing a bridge deck overlay. Bridge deck overlays will also take place on the bridges over the St. Joseph River and St. Joe Road.

Work is expected to wrap up for the year by December and begin again in March 2024 to complete construction. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.

During construction, drivers can expect lower speed limits and changing traffic patterns to accommodate construction.

INDOT reminds drivers to consider worker safety by slowing down, using extra caution and driving distraction-free when traveling in and around all work zones.
