Exits close on Indiana Toll Road for repaving project

As part of the 80/90 Pavement Upgrade for a Superior Highway (PUSH) project, the Indiana Toll Road Concession Company LLC (ITRCC), the operator of the Indiana Toll Road, announced that the Elkhart Exit (92) closed yesterday April 5, at 9:00 a.m. Exit 92 is scheduled to be closed for three weeks. All entry and exit ramps at this exit will be closed.

 

This closure is necessary to allow workers to mill and repave the interchange. ITRCC’s general contractor, Rieth-Riley Construction Co. Inc., recently resumed construction and lane closures for the second year of the 80/90 PUSH construction project. The 73-mile, $200 million project involves the reconstruction of the mainline roadway and bridge deck replacements.

 

The full project, which began in March 2016, involves the rehabilitation of 73 miles of pavement, including shoulders and ramps as needed, the rehabilitation of 53 bridges, and the installation of a fiber-optic cable to support an Intelligent Transportation System (ITS). It is the largest project undertaken by the Toll Road since its original construction in 1954. The project is due to be substantially completed prior to the July 4 weekend this year.
