INDOT plans closures of I-465 for south side construction

INDOT is planning another major highway closure later this year.

INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - A large portion of Interstate 465 will close on the south side of Indianapolis later this year.

Crews will close the eastbound lanes of I-465 between I-70 and I-65 from September 14 through about September 24. The westbound lanes will then close from September 28 and reopen on or before October 8. Only one direction of the interstate will be closed at a time.

INDOT says the repair project will remove and replace concrete bridge approaches over Kentucky Avenue (SR 67), State Ditch, White River and Harding Street (SR 37). Bridge joints will also be replaced and asphalt and concrete will be patched during the closures.

Detour information

Drivers affected by the closures will be directed to I-65 and I-70 for detours around the construction. Those who would normally take I-465 to get to SR 37 or SR 67 will need to take I-70 to Harding Street (Exit 78). Southbound Harding Street will take drivers to SR 37 or SR 67 via Kentucky Avenue.

If you normally use US 31, INDOT recommends considering I-65 as an alternate route.

Drivers who normally take I-465 to get to SR 37 or SR 67 will be directed to take I-70 to Harding Street.
Drivers who get onto US 31 from I-465 are being encouraged to use I-65 as a detour.
