Entry Description

Changes to Improve Safety on I-70 Ramp to I-465

 

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) crews plan to install tubular lane-marking posts tomorrow on the westbound I-70 ramp to southbound I-465 on the city’s east side. The tubular markers are intended to increase visual guidance, improve lane delineation and help slow traffic on the ramp as a cost-efficient means of reducing crashes and improving safety.

 

Overhead signs will be replaced in the near future that will alert motorists of a reduced speed advisory of 35 MPH. Large yellow overhead signs and flashing lights currently notify motorists of an advisory speed of 40 MPH.

 

INDOT will continue monitoring the crash rate on the ramp to evaluate a future need for additional safety improvements. By adding the tubular markers and reducing speed, INDOT intends to reduce the frequency of crashes on the ramp, especially from semi-trailers and other large trucks.

 

The ramp will remain open to one lane of traffic during and after the installation of the traffic control devices. Motorists should use extra caution on the ramp during daylight hours Wednesday as crews will be working from the shoulder.

 

Motorists, residents and businesses are encouraged to visit www.indot.in.gov and subscribe to email updates using the GovDelivery red envelope icon. Updates are also available by liking the Indiana Department of Transportation East Central Facebook page and by following @INDOT_ECentral on Twitter.
