One of the busiest interchanges in Indianapolis is scheduled to get a $50 million overhaul, Gov. Mike Pence announced Tuesday.
Citing significant growth in Fishers, Noblesville and northeast Indianapolis, Pence said the state would build a new interchange at I-465 and I-69.
The project will involve building a high-speed, two-lane ramp over Binford Boulevard for traffic exiting I-465 from the east onto I-69 northbound. It also calls for widening I-465 to four lanes in each direction between the White River bridge and I-69. Two ramp lanes will also run between the I-69, Allisonville Road and Keystone Avenue interchanges for traffic entering and leaving I-465.
INDOT is seeking design proposals for the project, which is expected to begin construction in 2020, according to a statement released Tuesday.
