East Side I-70 Ramp Closing This Weekend
A major interstate ramp is closing this weekend for pavement repairs.
INDOT says the ramp from westbound I-70 to northbound I-465 on the city's east side will close beginning at 9 p.m. Friday. The closure will allow crews to remove and replace damaged pavement. Westbound I-70 access to southbound I-465 will remain open.
The ramp is expected to reopen by 6 a.m. on Monday, July 21. INDOT says dynamic message signs and detour route markers will direct traffic to continue west on I-70 to Shadeland Avenue (exit 89) and return eastbound on I-70 to access northbound I-465.
INDOT says these repairs are recurring and additional weekend ramp closures should be expected. However, only one of the two ramps, northbound or southbound, will be closed at a time each weekend through August.
