INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — If you use Ditch Road to go over I-465, you're going to need to find a different route.

The bridge will be closed for replacement beginning March 4.

It isn't scheduled to reopen until September 30.

Crew will be replacing the bridge during that time and adding sidewalks on either side.

To get around it you can take Ditch Road to 86th Street, turn left on Springmill Road then turn left on 96th Street.

When INDOT announced the bridge closure, the planned detour was full of potholes, causing concern for drivers.

According to Mayor Joe Hogsett, city Department of Public Works crews were out filling potholes on Spring Mill Road from Pine Drive to 96th Street ahead of the Monday closure.

This story has been corrected to show the closure was announced by INDOT, not DPW.
