Weekend I-465 Work to Cause Traffic and Road Closures
Motorists should be aware and prepared for changing traffic patterns on the southwest side of Indianapolis this weekend. INDOT says traffic flow on southbound to eastbound I-465 between I-70 and I-65 on the city’s southwest side will be limited to a single lane until Monday, April 3rd, at 5 a.m.
During the double-lane restriction, the speed limit on both eastbound and westbound I-465 will be 45 mph. Motorists are encouraged to slow down, pay attention to changing conditions and drive distraction-free.
To reduce traffic volume and the number of conflict points in the construction zone, several eastbound entrance ramps onto I-465 will close during this weekend’s lane restrictions. Starting Friday at 8 p.m. the following ramps will be closed:
I-70 eastbound to I-465 southbound
S.R. 67/Kentucky Ave. to I-465 eastbound
Mann Rd. to I-465 eastbound
S.R. 37/Harding St. to I-465 eastbound
While eastbound I-465 is restricted, I-70 eastbound traffic will be detoured east to I-65 southbound at the South Split.
The U.S. 31 southbound to I-465 westbound ramp will remain closed through 2024.
All other ramps will reopen by 5 a.m. on Monday.
Motorists should expect increased congestion during the weekend due to these restrictions and are encouraged to plan ahead and find alternate routes.
