From Paul Ross, Mayor’s Neighborhood Liaison:

Some of you may already be aware of INDOT’s plan to shut down a major section of the I-65 & I-70 exchange. Because of the constant threat of being struck trucks: who have their loads exceed the posted 13’ 11” clearance, there will be no access  to I-65, or I-70 at this exchange, in any direction. There will be a construction project whose plan is to lower the grade of this interchange to allow for additional clearance at seven overpasses near the South Split.  The closure (originally planned for 90 days) is scheduled to take place on September 3rd. Because of the incentives in place and advanced construction technologies the project will take 59 days. Contractors have started placing advanced notice and detour signs that will be uncovered beginning Monday, Sept. 2. Overhead and portable dynamic message signs will also be used to give advanced warning of the closure to motorists. Motorists, residents, and businesses are encouraged to visit to learn of the project details and sign uo for project updates. (See News Release below).
