A major exit ramp closure in the area may impact your travels for an extended period of time, as part of the ongoing south side bridge project.

On the south side of town, the westbound I-465 ramp to northbound I-65 will be closed for about a month.

During this time, you will be directed to go southbound on I-65 to use the Southport Road exit, and then you’ll be routed to return back onto northbound I-65 during this time.

The reason for the closure is to accommodate for a shift to phase two of this ongoing project.

During this second phase, one lane of southbound I-65 and two lanes of northbound I-65 will be closed while crews modify pavement markings.

Crews will also shift three northbound and two southbound lanes to share the southbound side of I-65 over I-465.

Again, this closure will continue for about a month, with the hope that the bridge project will be complete by the end of the year.
