Indianapolis, Indiana – The Indianapolis Department of Transportation (INDOT) has released a statement advising of imminent lane restrictions on Indianapolis’ northwest side.
From Monday, July 10, commencing at 9 p.m., INDOT‘s construction team will start to close off the innermost lane heading southbound on Interstate 465 on the northwest edge of the city, in close proximity to the I-65 south ramp.
The two outer lanes of this stretch will continue to be functional, albeit with a slight lateral shift.
For traffic intending to proceed on I-65 South, INDOT will direct vehicles to I-465 via I-865 in an attempt to bypass the lane closure.
In conjunction with this, the ramp from 56th Street leading to I-465 South will be shut off, with no announced detour at present.
The purpose of these lane restrictions is to provide a secure working environment for crews undertaking patchwork operations. Provided that weather conditions are favorable, INDOT anticipates that the roadwork will be completed by Tuesday, July 25.
INDOT takes this opportunity to remind road users to reduce their speed when navigating through construction zones, thereby ensuring safety while the necessary roadwork is underway.
Additional details regarding this and other scheduled roadworks on Indiana highways can be found by visiting the construction map on INDOT’s official site.
