INDIANAPOLIS—Good news for drivers who use the ramps connecting Kessler Boulevard North Drive to I 65 and West 38th Street on the Indianapolis northwest side.

Construction is done. The Department of Public Works is reopening the ramps by mid-afternoon, Wednesday.

Since early-July, workers have been rebuilding the four ramps that opened in 1963. The project cost is $1.8 million.

According to DPW, more than 21,000 vehicles use the ramps each day. "The work comes as part of a $400 million infrastructure plan over the next four-years to rehabilitate, rebuild roads and increase pedestrian safety," according to DPW Chief Communications Officer Betsy Whitmore. "
