INDOT (Indiana Department of Transportation)

Dear All,

Below is information about some INDOT (Indiana Department of Transportation) projects that will be taking place in the late spring that will definitely affect those of you who travel I – 65 from the northern part of our district and those who use I – 65 to travel to downtown Indianapolis or through town to I – 70 east or I – 65 south.  Areas of I – 65 will be closed during this work.  The closure will also affect the roads that will be used as detours or alternate routes by an increase of traffic.  Please look at the maps and the information from INDOT and feel free to share this information with others who may be affected.

Note that there is a Public Meeting to discuss the project on Monday, February 12th, from 5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. in INDOT’s Indianapolis Sub-District Building located at 7105 S. Brookville Road.  This is a chance to get more information about the project and ask questions.

Specific dates for these projects are not yet known.  Dates will be announced after the construction contracts are awarded this spring.
