Motorists on the southside in the Interstate 69 construction zone can expect delays on Interstate 465 this week.
There will be single-lane and nightly double-lane closures on I-465 between Interstate 65 and Interstate 70 on Indianapolis’s southwest side. Crews will be prepping for the second weekend of I-465 restrictions scheduled for later this month, tentatively for this weekend from Friday night to early Monday morning, according to a weekly construction update from the Indiana Department of Transportation.
With the weekend restrictions mentioned in the bullet above, the following ramps will be closed to ease congestion and reduce traffic flow in the work zone:
- Eastbound I-70 to southbound I-465
- S.R. 67/Kentucky Avenue to eastbound I-465
- Mann Road to eastbound I-465
- S.R. 37/Harding Street to eastbound I-465
- U.S. 31/East Street southbound ramp to westbound I-465 will remain closed through 2024.
In other news, the new Smith Valley Road bridge over future I-69 is expected to open later this summer. The full interchange will be operational by the end of the year, INDOT officials say.
The most current information about closures and restrictions can be found at 511in.org or INDOT’s TrafficWise app.
