INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — The state is expected to spend $2 billion on road construction projects across Indiana this year.

"Obviously a large portion of that will be used in the central part of the state," said Mayor Joe Hogsett. "Key, obviously because of the motorists and the large amount of traffic that comes through at the very heart of the heartland. And that's a real asset for the state of Indiana."

There are more than 1,100 construction projects planned this year.

INDOT plans to resurface or reconstruct nearly 3,700 miles of pavement and crews will repair or replace more than 650 bridges.

INDOT also announced they'll likely be closing a portion of I-465 on the southeast side, like they did last year, for more construction.
