What's next: Major construction projects planned for the rest of summer


INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Summertime is construction season and as projects continue throughout central Indiana, there's more to come.

Beginning in the evening of July 26, all lanes of I-70 in both directions from I-465 to the South Split will close.

The closure will last for 9 days with all lanes reopening on at 6 a.m. Monday, Aug. 5. Plan accordingly.

Unfortunately, by the time I-70 reopens, more projects will have gotten underway.

On July 31, construction crews will start on projects for I-865 E and I-65 N.

The westbound lanes of I-865 east will close for bridge deck replacement from July 31 to Aug. 29. Then the eastbound lanes will be closed from Sept. 6 to Oct. 15.

The same is true for an I-65 project on the northwest side. Westbound lanes will close from July 31 to Aug. 29, while the eastbound lanes will close from Sept. 6 to Oct. 15.

Then there's the big one.

Beginning on Aug. 9, all lanes heading north on I-465 on the southeast side will close for construction. From Sept. 6 to Sept. 21, all southbound lanes will close.
