On Track Project Update: January 8, 2024


We are back to work after a brief holiday break, and the new I-69 is on schedule to open by the end of 2024.  When complete, it will be America’s newest interstate!

  • Overnight single and double-lane restrictions are expected this week on eastbound and westbound I-465 near Bluff Road, the Indiana Railroad overpass, and Harding Street. Lane restrictions will occur overnight between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. for bridge and pavement demolition work.  Lane restrictions will take place one location at a time. This schedule is dependent upon weather and may be delayed if necessary.
  • An upcoming traffic switch will close the right two lanes of westbound I-465, between Mann Road and I-70, from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. on the evening of Monday, January 8. During this time, the entrance ramp from SR 67/Kentucky Avenue will also close.  If weather delays this work, restrictions may occur the evening of Tuesday, January 9. 
  • Be alert for intermittent eastbound and westbound traffic stoppages on I-465 between Lick Creek and I-65 through March while demolition work on existing pavement continues. Intermittent stoppages should only last up to 20 minutes at a time.
  • The southbound US 31/East Street ramp to I-465 westbound will remain closed into summer 2024.
  • There will be single lane restrictions on southbound SR 37/I-69 between Smith Valley Road and SR 144 starting Monday, January 8 through Friday, January 12, for removal of temporary barrier wall. This schedule is dependent upon weather and may be delayed if necessary.
  • Intermittent stoppages are scheduled on southbound SR 37 between Olive Branch Road and SR 144 the evening of Thursday, January 11, for overhead sign installation. Stoppages are expected between 9 p.m. and 2 a.m. for up to 20 minutes at a time.

The actual starting date and duration for work and any closures may be adjusted if inclement weather or other unforeseen activities occur.
