INDOT will close portions of I-65 in Indianapolis beginning July 1, 2018 for bridge preservation projects. The estimated date to reopen the interstate is August 5, 2018. Contractors will be rehabbing seven bridges along the stretch of I-65. This is not part of the highly-publicized North Split project.
Southbound Interstate 65 between the I-65/I-465 interchange on the northwest side of Indianapolis will be closed. During the closure, I-65 southbound traffic on the northwest side will be detoured via I-465 South or I-865 East.
The project will also close both directions of I-65 between Meridian St. (exit 113) and 21st St. (exit 115) in downtown Indianapolis. The entrance and exit ramps at the Dr. Martin Luther King St.//West St. interchange (exit 114) will also be closed. The entrance ramp from 21st St. to northbound I-65 will remain open.
INDOT has been coordinating with various stakeholders near the project to discuss maintenance of traffic and receive input on how to sustain some stakeholder services during construction.
