The project is intended to reduce congestion at existing I-69 interchanges at 96th and 116th streets, increase traffic safety in the area and provide direct interstate access at 106th Street. Direct access will serve existing residential and commercial destinations and accommodate development and population growth in the area.
The existing 106th Street bridge over I-69 will be removed as part of the project, which will require closing the overpass during construction. Traffic will be detoured to 96th Street via Allisonville and Lantern Roads. Specific construction schedule updates will be announced in the near future. The new 106th Street interchange ramps and access across I-69 are expected to open to traffic before the end of this year.
