The Indiana Department of Transportation will close portions of Interstate 65 in Indianapolis for approximately 35 days beginning in late spring for preservation projects on seven bridges.

Southbound I-65 between the I-65/I-465 interchange on the northwest side of Indianapolis will be closed. During the closure, I-65 southbound traffic on the northwest side will be detoured via I-465 South or I-865 East.

The project will also close both directions of I-65 between Meridian St. (exit 113) and 21st St. (exit 115) in downtown Indianapolis. The entrance and exit ramps at the Dr. Martin Luther King St.//West St. interchange (exit 114) will also be closed. The entrance ramp from 21st St. to northbound I-65 will remain open.

INDOT will host a public information meeting to discuss the project and answer questions from the public on Monday, Feb. 12 from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at INDOT's Indianapolis Sub-District building located at 7105 S. Brookville Road, Indianapolis.

INDOT says specific dates for the project will be announced after awarding a construction contract this spring. The agency also says this work is not part of the highly-publicized North Split project.
