INDIANAPOLIS (WIBC) — Construction will begin in 2022 on Clear Path 465, a project to improve safety and traffic flow on I-465 and I-69 where they connect on Indy’s northeast side.
The multi-year project has been divided into two contracts. Work should be complete in 2025.
Work is expected to begin in 2022 on the first contract to rebuild and add lanes to 4.5 miles of I-465 between the White River, just west of Allisonville Road, and Fall Creek.
Three multi-year ramp closures are needed to keep I-465 moving during construction. They’re expected to begin in the spring of 2022:
- The Allisonville Road on-ramp to eastbound I-465
- The Shadeland Ave./56th Street on-ramp to northbound I-465
- The northbound Binford Boulevard on-ramp (loop ramp) to westbound I-465
Contract two will begin in 2023 when INDOT starts work on about one mile of I-69 from 86th Street to I-465. This will change how I-69 and Binford Boulevard connects with I-465 and 82nd Street.
Interstate ramps between I-465 and I-69 will be transformed with high-sped, direct movements that improve safety by reducing the amount of traffic weaving and merging.
