FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- Due to inclement weather Wednesday night, the Indiana Department of Transportation has announced that I-69 will have lane restrictions between Exit 302 and 309 during nighttime hours while crews work on proactive bridge maintenance.

Crews will be working on the bridge over Norfolk Southern Railroad and CSX Railroad just north of Exit 305 and the bridge over US 24 at Exit 302.

On Thursday evening, June 13, beginning at 9 p.m., northbound I-69 is scheduled for restriction starting ½ mile north of Exit 305. On-ramp lane traffic from westbound SR 14 to northbound I-69 will use the shoulder until merging with I-69 traffic north of the bridge over the CSX Railroad. There is a 12-foot width limit in this lane. Northbound I-69 thru traffic will use the far left lane during this restriction. A mandatory 45 mph speed limit will be in force. The work is expected to be complete by 6 a.m. on Friday, June 14, weather permitting.

On Friday evening, June 14, beginning at 9 p.m., southbound I-69 will be intermittently restricted north of Exit 305. Speed restrictions of 45 mph will be in force. The work is expected to be complete by 6 a.m. on Saturday, June 15, weather permitting.
