The westbound lanes from the South Split to Ronald Reagan Parkway will close on June 26. All lanes are scheduled to reopen on July 30.

Detours

During the closures, drivers are encouraged to find alternate routes and plan extra time to travel.

  • From the airport to I-70 EB: Take the collector lanes to I-465 NB around to I-70 EB.
  • I-70 WB to the airport: Take I-465 SB around to Ronald Reagan collector lanes to get to the airport. Or continue North on I-465 to get back to I-70 WB.

INDOT says the full closures are being used to ensure safety for workers, reduce construction time, and save money.
