Road Closure in Indiana note for All Bracket Finals Racers
Tuesday, September 03, 2013
INDOT is launching an accelerated project that will close I-65 and I-70 between the north and south splits on the east side of downtown Indianapolis for approximately 59 days in Fall 2013 to reconstruct and lower one-half mile of pavement beneath seven bridges. The project is necessary to increase bridge clearances and reduce the potential for collisions from unpermitted and off-route trucks with oversize and unsecure loads.
The expected schedule calls for closing the interstate between the north and south splits after Labor Day on Tuesday, September 3. Message boards and signage will direct I-65 and I-70 through traffic to use the south and west legs of I-465.
This means that those going over to Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis, Indiana will have to use I-465 to get to the west side of Indianapolis instead of going through I-70.
