Temporary Express Lane to Open for Westbound I-465

Westbound I-465 restricted to one lane this weekend

INDIANAPOLIS (Aug. 12, 2022) – A temporary express lane is expected to open this weekend to help keep traffic flowing on westbound I-465 during Clear Path construction.

Westbound traffic should slow down and stay alert as the left lane splits off and crosses the center median just past I-69/Binford Boulevard. No large trucks will be allowed in the express lane, which will be in use for the rest of the year.

The temporary express lane will utilize an old eastbound lane separated by concrete barriers. Express lane traffic will not be able to exit at Allisonville Road. Traffic entering westbound I-465 from southbound I-69 and Allisonville Road will not have access to the express lane. Click here for a short video to learn more.

Weekend Restrictions

Restriping and shifting the I-465 lanes will reduce westbound traffic to one lane this weekend between I-69/Binford Boulevard and Keystone Avenue. Westbound I-465 entrance and exit ramps at I-69, Allisonville Road and Keystone Avenue will be restricted and may have brief closures. The short-term restrictions for westbound I-465 are expected to be in place Friday night through Sunday.

The 82nd Street on-ramp to southbound I-69 is also expected to close Friday night and remain closed through Wednesday morning, Aug. 17.

Temporary Ramp at I-69 Southbound to I-465

A temporary ramp is expected to open on Monday night for southbound I-69 traffic exiting onto westbound I-465, allowing the existing ramp to be closed and rebuilt.

It will change traffic patterns for southbound I-69 and Binford Boulevard. Traffic will exit to the right for southbound I-465 and from the center lanes for westbound I-465. Click here to watch a short video explaining the traffic changes.

Drivers are urged to observe the signs and pavement markings and stay alert for other vehicles as they adjust to the new traffic patterns. Southbound I-69 traffic will be restricted to one lane overnight Monday with stoppages of up to 20 minutes as overhead signs and pavement markings are changed.

Handsfree use of mobile mapping apps with real-time traffic is encouraged for local drivers seeking alternate routes.
