INDOT Planning For Big I-465 Project

INDOT Planning For Big I-465 Project

Construction for the I-465 Reconfiguration project on the southside of Indianapolis is still more than a year away, but state transportation officials want to prepare drivers for what is planned.

Indiana Department of Transportation spokesperson Mallory Duncan said the project is needed to fix safety and congestion issues in the corridor.

She said a variable speed limit system will be part of the work.

There will be digital signs that will change the speed limit based on traffic so traffic can get through faster and also that’s a lot safer,” Duncan said.

Virtual public meetings were held Tuesday to give people a chance to comment on the preliminary plans.
