North Split plan released by INDOT would fix bridges, cost $225M

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indiana Department of Transportation on Friday announced a preliminary alternative to repair the North Split where interstates 65 and 70 meet. 

Called Alternative 4c, the plan would replace “deteriorated pavement and bridge infrastructure, improving safety at the highest crash locations and reducing traffic congestion by removing existing bottlenecks,” according to INDOT. The estimated cost of the plan is $225-275 million, the report says.

The repairs will include replacing bridges and pavement and reconfiguring ramps, in addition to focused repairs on the west leg of the interchange to eliminate bottlenecks. The plan would also keep the footprint of the interchange minimal, as opposed to other concepts released in May that would have included tunnels or boulevards.
