South-side work restricts lane on I-469

FORT WAYNE – The northbound right lane of Interstate 469 is restricted between Exit 9 (Winchester Road) and Exit 11 (U.S. 27/U.S. 33).

The Indiana Department of Transportation announced Tuesday that maintenance work on I-469 on the south side of Fort Wayne is expected to continue through Friday evening.

The restriction is in a two-mile stretch, and INDOT said crews will be working on small sections within that area.
