The Indiana Department of Transportation has awarded a $79-million contract to Walsh Construction and Rieth-Riley Construction to widen Interstate 69 north of Indianapolis and rehabilitate a section of the highway from Daleville to Anderson.
Work is scheduled for I-69 from north of the State Road 38/W. State St. interchange west of Pendleton to north of the State Road 32 interchange near Daleville.
The contractors will add 8.4 miles of additional travel lanes inside the median, and will perform more than 6.5 miles of pavement maintenance. In addition, the contract calls for rehabbing, replacing and/or widening a total of 12 bridges.
The project is expected to be completed by summer 2020.
