The Indiana Department of Transportation will hold a public open house at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Decatur Central High School in Indianapolis to discuss and seek input on a project that will add travel lanes to portions of Interstate 465.
The first section of work will be done between the I-465/U.S. 31 interchange and the I-465/I-65 interchange. New lanes with retaining walls will be built along the eastbound and westbound lanes, with U.S. 31 exit and entrance ramps to I-465 reconfigured and extended. along with other projects in that area. The plans also call for replacement of bridges at Madison, Keystone and Carson avenues.
The second section of work will be done at the south end of the I-465/I-70 interchange, ending west of the interchange with Mann Road. Projects in this section will include adding travel lanes along I-465 and replacement of the Mooresville Road Bypass bridge.
Construction is scheduled to begin in 2021. Traffic will be maintained along I-465 with shoulder and lane closures during the work period. All interchange ramps will primarily remain open during construction, though there will be local road closures as bridges are replaced.
