INDOT joins us live on Community Connection to speak about a change on the Interstate of I-65)


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 varies stakeholders near the project to discuss maintenance of traffic and receive input on how to sustain some stakeholder services during construction.

Closure Date: July 1, 2018

Estimated Open Date: August 5, 2018″

“Do you enjoy talking transportation? Do you keep a sharp eye on transportation related trends and innovations? Do you have thoughts and ideas you’d like to share with Indiana’s transportation agency about the future of transportation in our state? If so, the Indiana Department of Transportation would like to invite you to an informative open house session, where transportation-related topics will be informally discussed through old fashioned, one-on-one conversations.

INDOT seeks to have a conversation with Indiana communities regarding the current status and future development of transportation in Indiana, and our programs and initiatives. As a conversation starter, we invite the public to meet for “Transportation Talk”, an informal open house. INDOT team members will be available to talk about their respective programs while addressing questions from the public and soliciting input. INDOT will host six “Transportation Talk” events in June at locations throughout west-central, southeastern and east central Indiana.”
