INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Department of Transportation announced a closure on I-465 for concrete pavement and bridge deck patching work.

Beginning on or after May 31, crews will close I-465 southbound between I-70 and I-65 on the southeast side of Indianapolis. On weekdays, traffic on I-465 southbound will be reduced to three lanes between 46th Street to the I-465/I-70 interchange. On weekends, traffic will be reduced to two lanes. These closures will allow crews to safely complete pavement restoration, bridge deck patching and joint repairs.

The following ramps will also be closed starting at the following dates and times: I-70 eastbound and westbound to I-465 southbound (7 p.m. May 31); Washington St./U.S. 40 eastbound and westbound to I-465 southbound (9 a.m. May 31); Brookville Road / U.S. 52 eastbound and westbound to I-465 southbound (9 a.m. May 31); Shadeland Avenue southbound to I-465 southbound (9 a.m. June 1); Southeastern Avenue / Old U.S. 421 to I-465 southbound (9 a.m. June 1); I-74 westbound to I-465 southbound (9 a.m. June 1); Emerson Avenue northbound and southbound to I-465 westbound (9 a.m. June 1); and Pendleton Pike eastbound and westbound to I-465 southbound (9 p.m. May 30).
