I-465 Traffic Shift Begins Wednesday Night


INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) contractors are planning a two-phase traffic shift on Interstate 465 on the city’s west side.  The shifts will allow contractors to replace temporary pavement with permanent concrete, making way for the added traffic lanes in the final configuration of the Accelerate 465 project at the I-74/US 136/Crawfordsville Road interchange.


Crews will begin implementing the shift Wednesday, August 29 at 9 p.m.  Two lanes of southbound traffic will remain open on the right-hand side of I-465.  A third express lane, which will not have access to exit ramps, will be directed to the median between 34th and 21st Streets.  Trucks will be restricted from the express lane, and a 45 mph speed limit will be enforced.  Overhead signs will help direct motorists to the proper lanes.  This phase is expected to last about three weeks.


The second phase, expected to begin in mid-September, will shift three lanes of southbound I-465 traffic toward the median onto new pavement and the widened bridge over Big Eagle Creek.  One lane will remain on the right-hand side for exiting to westbound I-74, US 136 and Crawfordsville Road.  This phase is expected to last about six weeks.


Northbound I-465 will undergo similar traffic shifts beginning sometime shortly after the Labor Day weekend.


When the pavement replacement is complete, I-465 will be put in its permanent configuration with four lanes for through traffic and additional auxiliary and ramp lanes for traffic entering and exiting the interstate.
