Traffic shift on I-65 planned for North Split Project

MARION CO. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announced today that lanes will shift into a new configuration on I-65 southbound collector/distributor (C/D) for the next phase of the interchange reconstruction. This work is part of the project to redesign and reconstruct the I-65/I-70 North Split interchange in the northeast corner of downtown Indianapolis.

Crews have already begun construction on the new crossover on the I-65 southbound C/D. As part of the traffic shift, this weekend the left lane of I-65 southbound C/D will be closed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. to avoid peak commuting times.

Additionally, the barrier wall on the inside shoulder will be removed and temporary pavement will be constructed for the crossover to maintain access to the Ohio Street exit. One lane of travel will remain open to drivers exiting at Ohio Street after this weekend and before rush hour Monday morning.

Traffic will be transitioned to the new pavement before rush hour on Aug. 16.

Detailed maps with construction-related closure and access information can be found on the North Split website:

Access to downtown Indianapolis will be maintained via:

  • I-70 westbound exit ramp to Michigan or Ohio St.
  • Pine St. entrance ramp to I-70 eastbound from Ohio St. and Michigan St.
  • I-65 northbound/I-70 eastbound exit ramp to Washington St.
  • I-65 northbound and southbound to Martin Luther King. Jr./West St.
  • I-65 southbound to Meridian St.
  • All existing ramps on I-70 west of the South Split
