Weekend lane restrictions on westbound I-465 are currently scheduled to begin Friday, March 10, weather permitting. Crews will be working this week to prepare for the restrictions by paving and strengthening inside shoulders. Three-to-four days of drier, milder weather are needed for asphalt paving.
Restrictions are scheduled to begin Friday evening on I-465 westbound around 8 p.m. Traffic will be limited to a single lane. Construction crews will shift the westbound lanes to the north onto temporary pavement in preparation for the I-465 eastbound shift later in the month.
To ease congestion and keep traffic moving during these restrictions, several westbound entrance ramps onto I-465 are expected to close. From Friday 8 p.m. to Monday 5 a.m. access to I-465 westbound from I-65 southbound, I-65 northbound, U.S. 31 southbound, U.S. 31 northbound, and State Road 37/Harding Street will be closed.
Visuals of the two weekends of lane restrictions and ramp closures are available here.
