The proposed Clear Path 465 project includes added travel lanes on I-465 from the White River Bridge (approximately 2.4 miles west of I-69) to Fall Creek(approximately 2.15 miles south of I-69) on the northeast side of Indianapolis.
Portions of I-69 will be reconstructed between I-465 and 82nd Street (Exit 201) to accommodate a modified I-465 & I-69 interchange configuration.

- East side of I-69, south of 82nd Street
- North of 75th Street, along the I-465 northbound to I-69 northbound ramp
- North side of I-465, west of Allisonville Road
- South side of I-465, east of Allisonville Road
- West side of I-465, south of 75th Street
