I-69 meeting rescheduled

A public information meeting on the diverging diamond project at Interstate 69 and Dupont Road that was postponed due to weather has been rescheduled.

The meeting will be from 6 to 7 p.m. Monday in the Carroll High School auditorium, 3701 Carroll Road.

The meeting will consist of a presentation and a question and answer session.

After the meeting, the public will have time to interact with the design consultant, contractor and Indiana Department of Transportation personnel.

The $3.5 million project is expected to begin in April and be complete by October. A diverging diamond interchange uses traffic signals at each end to have traffic cross over to driving on the left side of the road through the intersection. That allows left turns to be made without interference from cross-traffic.

The interchange is one of the most congested in the region, with long delays caused by traffic trying to turn left off I-69 onto Dupont Road or Indiana 1 and drivers on Dupont trying to turn left onto I-69.

The new configuration is expected to eliminate those problems, officials said.
