(INDIANAPOLIS) – Work is underway on a $430 million redesign of one of Indiana’s busiest and most crash-prone interchanges.

INDOT will add a lane in each direction on 465 on Indy’s northeast side, between Allisonville Road and 56th Street. It’ll also redesign ramps to make it easier to exit onto I-69.

The project includes 14 new bridges and repairs to two existing ones.

Both interstates frequently slow to a crawl during rush hour. Governor Holcomb says the “Clear Path 465” project will add capacity and improve traffic safety in an area he says has become “almost the epicenter” of Indy’s economic growth.

The three-year project is a highlight among 13-hundred INDOT road projects this year. The project list also includes continued work on the final leg of I-69 south of Indianapolis, and completion of the North Split project in downtown Indy.

Unlike the North Split, Clear Path 465 won’t close any lanes on 465 or 69. But three on-ramps to get onto 465 will close, at Allisonville, Binford Boulevard, and 56th Street. And 71st Street will be closed at Binford.
