Upcoming closures on I-465 southbound starting May 31

INDIANAPOLIS — I-465 southbound between I-70 and I-65 on the southeast side of Indianapolis will be closed for maintenance starting on May 31, the Indiana Department of Transportation announced on Monday.

Crews will be restoring the pavement, repairing joints and patching bridge decks. During the week, I-465 southbound between 46th Street and the I-465/I-70 interchange will be reduced to three lanes. On the weekends, it will be further reduced to two lanes.

The closures are expected to end by the last few weeks in June.

I-465 ramp closures

Eight ramps will be closed due to the project, including:

  • Pendleton Pike eastbound and westbound to I-465 southbound (starting May 30 at 9 pm)

  • Washington St./US 40 eastbound and westbound to I-465 southbound (starting May 31 at 9 am)

  • Brookville Road/US 52 eastbound and westbound to I-465 southbound (starting May 31 at 9 am)

  • I-70 eastbound and westbound to I-465 southbound (starting May 31 at 7 pm)

  • Shadeland Avenue southbound to I-465 southbound (starting June 1 at 9 am)

  • Southeastern Avenue/Old US 421 to I-465 southbound (starting June 1 at 9 am)

  • I-74 westbound to I-465 southbound (starting June 1 at 9 am)

  • Emerson Avenue northbound and southbound to I-465 westbound (starting June 1 at 9 am)

Starting on or after May 31, I-465 southbound between I-70 and I-65 on the southeast side of Indianapolis will be closed. The closures are for repairs and road restoration.

The Indiana Department of Transportation recommends drivers use I-465 southbound to I-70 westbound to I-65 southbound as a workaround.

The project’s maintenance work is Phase 2 of 6 to restore I-465 between I-65 and US 31 on the east side of Indianapolis. The project should be finished by spring 2025.

I-465 ramp metering

Ramp metering began this spring on I-465 between I-65 and I-70. When the traffic signal turns green on the ramp, one vehicle is able to merge into traffic at a time.

This project is one of several changes the department has made this year, including the ramp metering on I-465 between I-65 and I-70 during the busiest travel times. Ramp metering regulates the number of vehicles on the highway. When the light turns green on the ramp, one car merges into traffic at a time.
