Operation Indy CommuteOperation Indy Commute is a new initiative by INDOT to strategically open up recurring commuting bottlenecks in the Indianapolis metropolitan area. The program is modeled after successful, quick-turnaround traffic flow improvements built in other states under the Federal Highway Administration’s Localized Bottleneck Reduction Program.

Several improvements are intended to improve traffic flow and reduce congestion at I-65 and I-465 on the southeast side of Indianapolis:

  • Replace the I-465 westbound to I-65 southbound loop ramp with a new two-lane flyover ramp
  • Rebuild the I-465 eastbound to I-65 southbound ramp on a new alignment to accommodate the new flyover ramp
  • Widen the northbound I-65 to eastbound I-465 ramp to two lanes
  • Widen and rebuild the shoulders for both directions of I-465 between I-65 and Emerson Avenue to provide additional passing and ramp/merge lanes
  • Widen and rebuild the right shoulder of I-65 northbound and southbound between I-465 and Southport Road to provide a new ramp/merge lanes
  • Replace the Sherman Drive bridge to allow more lanes of I-465 below
