New I-65/I-70 Flyover Bridge Open to Traffic

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is opening the largest structure within the North Split project. 

The southbound to eastbound flyover bridge is now open to traffic. Earlier this morning, North Split construction crews shifted traffic onto the interchange’s newly re-constructed flyover bridge. Motorists driving southbound on I-65 will now use this bridge, spanning from College Avenue to Lewis Street, to connect to I-70 eastbound. 

The on-ramp from Delaware/11th Street to I-70 eastbound also opened this morning, with traffic being routed directly onto the new flyover bridge. 

As progress continues, 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 Michigan Street and New York Street    
  • I-65 northbound/I-70 eastbound exit ramp to Washington Street (13-ton declared vehicle weight restriction in effect)   
  • I-65 northbound and southbound to Martin Luther King. Jr./West Street   
  • I-65 southbound to Meridian Street   
  • I-65 northbound to Meridian and Pennsylvania Streets   
  • All existing ramps on I-70 west of the South Split

INDOT encourages drivers to slow down, exercise caution, be aware of changing traffic patterns and drive distraction-free through all work zones.
