I-465 to close for 15 days on the Southeast side

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Department of Transportation will close a portion of I-465 on the Southeast side for 15 days. 

I-465 EB/NB will be closed from I-65 to I-70 on the Southeast side.

The first closure will begin on August 9 and run through August 24. 

After the Labor Day holiday, INDOT will close I-465 SB/WB from I-70 down to I-65.

That closure will begin on September 6 and run through September 21. 

No closures will be in place during the Labor Day weekend.

The closures are part of a statewide, $150 million plan to repair winter damage and improve pavement conditions around the state. 

During the closures, INDOT would like to remind drivers to plan alternate routes and leave early.
