Indy preparing for 59-day I-65/I-70 closure

The city of Indianapolis and the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) are working closely to prepare for the upcoming 59-day closure of I-65/I-70 between the north and south split scheduled to begin at 12:01 a.m. Sept. 3.

INDOT is coordinating the project, but the city is making preparations to accommodate displaced traffic and expects delays on city streets in the downtown area. The Department of Public Works (DPW) will temporarily restrict some on-street parking, detour the Indianapolis Cultural Trail: A Legacy of Gene & Marilyn Glick, monitor and adjust signal times, and limit on-street work to optimize traffic flow.

“DPW partnered with INDOT early on to develop the South Split Closure plan, understanding the critical importance of determining and communicating changes to regular traffic flow on city streets,” Public Works Director Lori Miser said in a press release. “We anticipate some increased traffic on city streets in the downtown area and encourage residents to be patient and give themselves multiple commute options.”

The city will assist in temporarily restricting on-street parking on Illinois, Delaware, Pennsylvania, College, and New York streets in the downtown area to free up additional vehicular travel lanes. These restrictions will vary between parking-time restrictions to prohibiting parking completely. The city will also monitor street repairs and try to limit permits to emergency issues only to minimize downtown thoroughfare delays.

Sections of New York Street will be temporarily restriped where parking is restricted to allow for an additional lane of traffic. Alternating lane restrictions should be expected on New York Street between Delaware and Pine streets. The daytime restrictions are expected to end each day by about 3 p.m. and the restriping will be complete before the Sept. 3 interstate closure.

The Pine Street entrance ramp to eastbound I-70 and one interstate lane adjacent to the ramp will have overnight restrictions as contractors work to temporarily widen the ramp to accommodate two lanes. This work will be complete before the Sept. 3 interstate closure.
