INDIANAPOLIS--Central Ave. will close under I-65 Monday morning because of North Split construction. The Indiana Dept. of Transportation made the announcement Saturday, saying Central will close between 11th and 12th streets, so that crews can demolish the overhead structures safely.

The closure is expected to last through April.

Alabama St., was expected to reopen this weekend after an extended closure for the same reason, and will be used as a detour route for the Central Ave. closure.

Northbound traffic will be detoured east on 10th Street then onto College Avenue. Southbound traffic will be rerouted west onto 16th Street then onto Alabama Street. Pedestrian traffic will be redirected to Alabama Street between 10th and 13th streets, said a news release from INDOT.
