INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Department of Transportation is expected to begin a years-long Interstate 465 construction project starting in 2022.

The Clear Path 465 project aims to improve safety and traffic flow on I-465 and Interstate 69 on the northeast side of Indianapolis.

It's divided into two contracts and work is expected to be completed in 2025, according to a press release from INDOT.

In 2022, work is expected to begin on the first contract, which will rebuild and add lanes to 4.5 miles of I-465 between the White River, west of Allisonville Road and Fall Creek Road.

Starting in 2023, work is expected to begin on about 1 mile of I-69 from 86th Street to I-465, according to INDOT. The project aims to change how I-69 and Binford Boulevard connects with I-465 and 82 Street.

While INDOT is completing the project in phases to keep both interstates open, there will be some traffic shifts and lane closures, according to INDOT.
