MARION COUNTY, Ind. – In addition to the 18-month full closure of the North Split interchange that begins this weekend, there will be shorter-term closures on city streets for bridge demolition as part of the larger project.

On or after Monday, May 17, Vermont Street between Davidson and Pine streets will be closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic while the bridges over Vermont Street are demolished. The bridge demolition work is estimated to be completed on or after June 7. During this local closure, eastbound traffic on Vermont Street will be detoured to New York Street, and westbound traffic will be detoured to Michigan Street. Pedestrian traffic will be detoured to Davidson, Michigan and Pine streets.

Also, beginning on or after Friday, May 21, Central Avenue between 11th and 12th Streets will be closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic while the bridge over Central Avenue is demolished.
