U.S. 24 (Fort to Port) Phases 4 & 4A

INDOT

Allen County, Indiana

LFA was selected to design a new partial control expressway with an at-grade intersection for the first construction phase of the Fort to Port project connecting I-469 to the Ohio state line. The success of this regional interstate joint venture required significant and continual coordination between both ODOT (Ohio Department of Transportation) and INDOT (Indiana Department of Transportation) staff. This phase of the overall project was completed by connecting the existing U.S. 24 route to the newly constructed U.S. 24 via S.R. 101 while the other three project phases were still under development. The project was significantly re-scoped to include full access control and interchanges from I-469 to the Ohio State Line. Committed to the original open to traffic date, LFA  divided the project into two construction phases allowing for design development of the S.R. 101 diamond interchange while the other elements east of the interchange were constructed. During the development of the Fort to Port project, LFA designed and prepared documents for three separate bridges U.S. 24 over Viland Ditch, U.S. 24 over Marsh Ditch and S.R. 101 over U.S. 24. LFA was solely responsible for project development providing roadway design, bridge designs, signing, lighting, signals, right-of-way engineering and pavement marking design.
