Dear All,

Below is information from INDOT (Indiana Department of Transportation) about construction work over the weekend.  Please plan accordingly and remember when there are backups and slow traffic on the interstate other roads in the area have a lot more traffic on them as well as people seek other routes.


Want to also remind everyone that Sunday is the Brickyard 400.  The race starts at 2 p.m. so traffic in and around Speedway and Crawfordsville Road will be extremely heavy and heading in and out of the track, as will traffic on I – 465 here on the west side.  Just want to make sure everyone is aware of this.


Please feel free to forward this information on to others who may not be receiving this in our district or may be traveling around in Marion County.  It could be very helpful to them.


Have a great weekend.  The weather sounds like it will be pleasant, so enjoy!




Janice McHenry

City-County Councillor District 6

Weekend Work: Construction around Marion County

Friday, September 6 to Monday, September 9

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Department of Transportation encourages motorists to plan ahead for another full weekend of construction in Marion County.

Contractors will be working to repair winter damage, extend the life spans of pavement and bridges, and perform maintenance in five interstate work zones around the Indianapolis metro area.

To avoid delays and congestion, motorists should consider using local streets rather than interstates. Motorists who do use metro area interstates during the weekend should prepare for delays and congestion.

Indiana State Police and the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department will be patrolling work zones and ticketing drivers for speeding and reckless/distracted driving.  INDOT crews and Hoosier Helpers will be present on the interstates to make sure drivers are aware of slowing traffic and upcoming work zones.

Construction work is weather dependent in some cases.
