Learn more about this project, including project staging and how to do the zipper merge when travelling through this project area. Note: All businesses and residences will remain accessible throughout the project, however you may have to follow a detour to reach your destination. And Hwy 25 in Belle Plaine remains open throughout construction.
SB Hwy 169 is reduced to a single lane between Delaware Ave. and Hwy 25
Details on upcoming traffic impacts will be added as they become available.
About this project
Summary of work
Repair or replace concrete pavement on Hwy 169 from just south of Hwy 282 in Jordan to just north of Hwy 19 in Blakely Township
Construct Reduced Conflict Intersection (RCI) at Hwy 59/Delaware Ave
Install cable median barrier between Jordan and Belle Plaine
When you encounter a construction zone where a lane will be closed, perform the zipper merge. A zipper merge occurs when motorists use both lanes of traffic until reaching the defined merge area, and then alternate in a "zipper" fashion into the open lane.
