Rolling slowdown planned for I-69

Drivers can expect rolling slowdowns on Interstate 69 throughout the day Sunday, weather permitting. The traffic slowdowns are needed to allow contractors for American Electric Power to remove electric lines over the interstate, between county roads East 300 North and East 400 North in Huntington County.

A series of rolling slow-downs will take place from 6 a.m. to noon, with the assistance of law enforcement. The slowdowns will be on I-69 southbound from mile marker 294 to 290 and on I-69 northbound from mile marker 287 to 291. The slow-downs, which will take motorists down to 10 mph or below, will create traffic voids to allow for the safe removal of the power lines.

Electronic message boards will alert motorists of the rolling slowdown. Drivers may wish to seek an alternative route. If weather is unfavorable, a rain date will be scheduled.
