Here’s what INDOT recommends:

Reroute INDOT

If you’re coming from the south side, it’s suggested you peel off on westbound I-465. Grab eastbound I-70 to hit the West St. or Meridian St/Illinois ramps and into downtown.

You can also take westbound I-465 to U.S. 31 and hop off, or just take U.S. 31 or S.R. 135/ S. Meridian all the way into downtown. Look here:


Also, those who live on the southeast side – say Franklin Township – might want to bump in on Southeastern.

These kind of closures are happening until August, and possibly beyond (we’ve already had one delay). We’ll keep you updated with the traffic blogs, and you can always fire questions over to @WIBCTraffic on Twitter. 

I know the moderator, and he loves to help.

Good luck.
