Weekend construction will cut EB I-465 to one lane Friday night
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Indianapolis drivers might need to consider an alternate route if their travel plans include eastbound I-465 on the city’s southwest side.
Traffic flow will be reduced to one lane on eastbound I-465 between I-70 and I-65 starting at 8 p.m. Friday as part of the I-69 Finish Line Project, the Indiana Department of Transportation says.
The altered traffic pattern will be in place until 5 a.m. Monday. During this time, the speed limit on both eastbound and westbound I-465 will be 45 mph.
To try and cut down on traffic flow, INDOT will close the following entrance ramps Friday night:
- 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, traffic on I-70 eastbound will be detoured east to southbound I-65 at the South Split, INDOT says.
The U.S. 31 southbound ramp to I-465 westbound ramp, which was shut down earlier this month, will remain closed through 2024.
All other ramps will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.
