Construction work to begin on I-65 NB and SB in Indianapolis

INDIANAPOLIS – Work is scheduled to begin next week on I-65 near downtown Indianapolis.

This project is the first of many Marion County projects this summer as the Indiana Department of Transportation works to clean up the interstates after two years of harsh freeze/thaw cycles during the winter months.

Crews will be working on I-65 NB and SB in segments. They will be patching the road and repaving. Weather permitting, construction will take place on weekend nights from next weekend (April 26) through August. 


Each weekend, one side of I-65 will be completely closed. Crews will be working northbound first, then moving southbound. 

When working on northbound lanes, they will shut them down from 9 p.m. Friday to Monday at 6 a.m.

When working on southbound lanes, they will be closed from 7 p.m. Friday to Monday at 3 p.m. 

The only exception is in segment 3. The north and south split will be accessible by at least one lane in both directions when crews are working in the area.


The map below references the order in which work will be completed.

Construction teams will work Northbound through Segments 1-3, then Eastbound on segment 4. That work is scheduled to be completed at the beginning of June.

Teams will then move Southbound through Segments 1-3, then Westbound on Segment 4. Work is scheduled to be completed in August.
