Last Updated on June 25, 2018 by cassnetwork

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is one week away from the 35-day closure of I-65 on the northwest side and downtown Indianapolis to rehab seven bridges.

Southbound I-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 encourages motorists to plan ahead, find alternate routes and expect detours before and during the closure.

The closure is anticipated for Sunday, July 1 and expected to reopen on Sunday, August 5.
