North Split interchange to reopen by Monday

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Interstate 65 through the North Split interchange is expected to reopen this weekend after what seems like a lifetime of construction.

The Indiana Department of Transportation announced Thursday that all I-65 northbound and southbound lanes are to be open by Monday, if weather permits.

INDOT says during the process, drivers can expect multiple short-term lane restrictions as crews install pavement markings and move barrels to open lanes.

Drivers will be able to travel along I-65 through the North Split interchange in both directions, a release said Thursday.

INDOT also wants to remind drivers that once the North Split opens I-65 SB via the Delaware/11th Street ramp will no longer be available and access to the Merdian/Pennslyvania Street exit will only be available through I-65 NB.

Drivers can access downtown via these roadways:

  • I-70 WB collector/distributor (C/D) exit ramp to Michigan Street  
  • I-65 NB/ I-70 EB exit ramp to Washington Street  
  • I-70 WB to Martin Luther King, Jr./West Street  
  • I-65 SB to Meridian Street  
  • I-65 SB to West Street 
  • All existing ramps on I-70 west of the South Split   

The I-65 SB to C/D movement, Ohio Street exit ramp, and Meridian/Pennsylvania exit ramp remain under construction. All ramps and movements are expected to open by the end of May.
