I-465 work

Dear All,

Below is the latest information that I have received from INDOT (Indiana Department of Transportation) about road construction on I-465, I-865, and I-65 over the weekend.  It also includes ramp closures.  Note that there are ramp closures on Lafayette Road and I-65.  It does seem that at times ramps are closed that have not been on this list in areas that they are working.  Plan accordingly in case traffic is backed up close to a work zone or you cannot enter or exit where you were planning to do so.  Take a look at the map to see how it may affect you and where you may be driving.

Please do obey the speed limit signs that are posted in work zones.  This is for everyone’s safety – those working and for motorist as well.

Have a good weekend.  The weather sounds like it will be terrific and great for being out doors.

Weekend Work: Construction around Marion County

September 13-16

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Department of Transportation is encouraging drivers to plan ahead for a weekend full of construction.

INDOT crews and contractors will be out in five different locations around Indianapolis interstates this weekend to repair winter damage, extend the life span of bridges and pavement and complete maintenance tasks.

Drivers are encouraged to plan their routes ahead of time and use local routes when they can. In construction zones, please slow down and don’t drive distracted. Drivers are also reminded to add extra time to get to weekend destinations.

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.
