Expect slow-downs on I-69 Sunday morning

Motorists can expect rolling slow-downs and temporary ramp closures on I-69 in Allen County on Sunday, Dec. 2, weather permitting. The traffic slow-downs are needed to allow contractors to work over the highway, according to the Indiana Department of Transportation.

A series of rolling slow-downs will take place on I-69 between mile marker 302 to 313 between the hours of 6 a.m. and noon, with the assistance of law enforcement. The operation will also require the temporary closure of ramps at U.S. 30/Goshen Road to I-69 southbound, Indiana 3/Lima Road to I-69 southbound, and Indiana 14/Illinois Road to I-69 northbound. Electronic message boards will alert motorists of the conditions. Drivers may wish to seek an alternate route.

The slow-downs, which will take motorists down to 10 mph or below, will create traffic voids to allow for the safety of workers over the highway. Drivers should be aware of slowed or stopped traffic in the area and are cautioned not to proceed past law enforcement officers until after they have completely cleared the travel lane.
