I-69 Section 5 to be at interstate speed on Monday, Nov. 5

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (Nov. 2, 2018) – Over the weekend crews will begin pulling barrels off of mainline I-69 and uncovering speed limit signs throughout the corridor. Motorists can anticipate interstate speeds beginning on Monday, November 5.

The speed limit will be 55 miles per hour in Bloomington proper between Rockport Road and Kinser Pike, a distance of just under eight miles. The speed limit increases to 70 miles per hour between Kinser Pike and Indian Creek, a distance of more than 13 miles.

The freeway ends just north of the Liberty Church interchange, and northbound motorists should be prepared to reduce speeds as they approach Martinsville.

There will continue to be intermittent lane restrictions on I-69 through November for punch list work items. Those restrictions will be for short distances and clearly marked. Motorists should be prepared to reduce speed to 55 miles per hour in areas where work is being done.
