I-65 southbound traffic shift onto temporary lanes starting today

MARION COUNTY, Ind. – Starting, January 31, traffic heading from I-65 southbound to I-70 eastbound will be redirected to the new bridge over Lewis Street using newly constructed temporary lanes.

These temporary lanes will allow construction crews to continue pile driving, bridge demolition, and paving as work on the North Split progresses.

Motorists wishing to understand the traffic changes can watch this short video that visually describes the shift.

Access to downtown Indianapolis will be maintained via: 

  • I-70 westbound collector/distributor (C/D) ramp exit ramp to Michigan Street (13-ton declared vehicle weight restriction in effect)
  • Pine Street entrance ramp to I-70 eastbound from Ohio Street, Michigan Street and New York Street
