Statement as issued Monday by INDOT:
FORT WAYNE, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces that the current traffic configuration of US 27/ Lima Road, between SR 930/Coliseum Boulevard and Dalgren Avenue, is anticipated to be switched from the west to the east side of the road.
Northbound and southbound traffic will be directed to the newly resurfaced lanes as work begins on the other remaining lanes. The switch over is scheduled to occur throughout Wednesday, June 25, weather permitting.
The new traffic controls will include striping and switching the signal heads, in addition to moving the traffic barricades, cones and barrels.
The current configuration is expected to last until September. During this time work will be occurring on signal heads, traffic markings, curb and gutter, storm sewer, in addition to resurface operations.
The US 27/ Lima Road project was awarded to E&B Paving for $1.5 million. All work is anticipated to be completed by early September 2014.
INDOT reminds drivers to use caution and consider worker safety when driving through a construction zone.
