New Madison Avenue to open, Carson Avenue to be replaced
INDIANAPOLIS (July 12, 2022) – Intersection improvements are planned at the north junction of Thompson Road and Mann Road, near the bridge being replaced over I-465. The work is scheduled to close the intersection and the eastbound I-465 on-ramp for a long weekend starting after 6 p.m. Thursday.
The detour for the Mann Road bridge replacement over I-465 follows Thompson Road, Kentucky Avenue and Mann Road.
Alternate access to I-465 eastbound is from the S.R. 67/Kentucky Avenue on-ramp. Residential access to Thompson Road east of Mann Road is from the south. Click here for a map of the closure.
The intersection and the I-465 eastbound on-ramp are expected to reopen before the Monday morning commute.
Madison Avenue overpass
The brand-new Madison Avenue bridge over I-465 and Lick Creek is expected to open ahead of schedule later this week. The bridge closed in February for replacement and will allow for additional lanes of I-465 to cross underneath in the future.
The Carson Avenue overpass near I-65 is expected to close for a similar replacement project in late July. The detour will follow Keystone Avenue and Thompson Road.
About I-69 Finish Line
I-69 Finish Line is the sixth and final section of the Interstate 69 connection between Evansville and Indianapolis. The project will upgrade the existing S.R. 37 to interstate standards between Martinsville and Indianapolis.
Governor Eric Holcomb’s Next Level Connections program fully funded the project and accelerated construction by three years. I-69 Finish Line is expected to open to traffic in late 2024, improving safety and reducing travel time.
