Survive 65

The I-65 construction project is scheduled to shutdown the stretch of highway from 21st to Meridian Street from July 1 to August 5.

  • Experiment with new routes, including using Lafayette Road, Michigan and MLK and Meridian streets (remember Meridian is still closed at 29th)
  • Add an extra 20-30 minutes to your commute
  • Use I-465 whenever possible
