Work on I-69's Dupont Road interchange to begin Monday

Weather permitting, work to create the state's first diverging diamond interchange will begin Monday at the Dupont Road exit of Interstate 69, the Indiana Department of Transportation said today.

The speed limit on Dupont Road will be reduced to 35 mph from Dupont Commerce Court to Parkview Plaza, INDOT said in a statement. It said the northbound I-69 off-ramp to Dupont Road will be restricted.

Earth work on the ramps will take place until mid-May, and the project is to be completed by late October, the statement said. To avoid delays, it said, drivers may seek alternate routes, such as the Union Chapel Road exit at milepost 317.

In a diverging diamond interchange, drivers will be guided to the left of the interchange with signals, signs and pavement markings, the statement said.
