A date has been set for the closure of the south split near downtown Indianapolis.

Milestone Contractors will close I-65 and I-70 for two months starting September 3 to lower pavement under seven bridges near the split.

Lane restrictions in the area will begin on Labor Day, September 2. Motorists on the affected interstates are reminded to be aware of reduced travel lanes and restricted work zones that day.

Dozens of trucks have been caught on video striking the underside of bridges in the area, particularly the Virginia Avenue bridge.

Detour signs are being placed in the area of the construction to give motorists advanced warning of the closure.
