INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — We are about to see complete or partial closures around Marion County on I-65, I-70, I-465 and I-865.

Even if you detour around one stretch of I-65 construction, a few miles later you'll likely run into more.

So Eyewitness News asked INDOT what drivers can do, and this is what the experts had to say:

  • Check Google and Apple Maps before you head out (INDOT updates them with construction projects)
  • Look for ways around the construction on other highways or city streets
  • Give yourself extra time to get where you are going
  • Watch what the cars in front of you are doing with lane crossovers and other lane shifts
  • Slow down in construction zones and keep an eye out for workers
