INDIANAPOLIS — Just as you're getting back into the habit of using I-465 after the last closure, INDOT is closing down parts of the interstate again.

Large portions of I-465 will be closed between I-70 and I-65 on the southeast side of the city for over two weeks. This time, they're focusing on the southbound and westbound lanes.

The closures begin at 9 p.m. Friday and are slated to go through Saturday, Sept. 21.

Construction will start between State Road 9 and State Road 109, that's Greenfield to Knightstown.

"Contractor crews will perform concrete pavement restoration, joint repair and replacement and bridge maintenance and rehabilitation to address winter damage and extend the life of pavement and bridges in the corridor," INDOT said. "Crews will also be working on sign replacement, guardrail repair, drain clearing, sweeping and debris cleanup during the closure."

The official interstate detour for SB and WB I-465 will follow I-70 and I-65 through downtown Indianapolis.

Through traffic is encouraged to follow I-465 NB and EB to avoid congestion and delays.

Westbound through traffic on I-74 should follow the posted detour or use I-465 NB and EB.
