I-469 $24 Million Pavement Replacement Project Scheduled to Begin Monday

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): A two-year, $24.4 million paving project is set to begin Monday, March 9th on I-469 south of Fort Wayne.

In addition to pavement work, construction of crossovers in the medians will follow with completion later this year. The crossovers are being constructed in preparation of the bridge deck rehabilitation work over Snyder Ditch, the St. Mary’s River and U.S. 27.


After the crossovers are complete, traffic will be switched to the eastbound lanes, along with the closure of Winchester Road westbound ramps while the westbound lanes are constructed. Later this spring, traffic will be switched to the completed side, with the Winchester Road eastbound ramps closed followed by the construction of the westbound lanes.

If you are using that route, traffic could be delayed or slowed by heavy equipment as they're preparing work site place traffic controls. The speed limit will also be reduced through this construction zone to 55 mph.
