IMPORTANT INFORAMTION PLEASE READ & RELAY
Indiana Department of Transportation’s “I-70/ I-65 South Split Closure

The Indiana Department of Transportation’s “I-70/ I-65 South Split Closure” is scheduled to begin September 3rd through October 31st.  During the closure, four Indianapolis Colts home games will be affected.  Fans attending the four games during this period should plan accordingly for both inbound and outbound.  IMPD believes the outbound following the game(s) will be the most effected and determined it is prudent to make some alterations in the traffic patterns during these games.  They are adding additional DPW message boards with helpful information concerning alternate routes to help with this process.  IDOT will be doing a very robust media blitz concerning the upcoming closure.  This will include utilizing the interstate message boards around Marion County to advise motorists of the closure.

IMPD believes the modifications listed below will assist with the egress/outbound traffic patterns following these Colts games.

  • Vehicular traffic southbound on Capitol will be routed onto westbound I-70.  (This will include any vehicles exiting the south lot onto Capitol).
  • Vehicles exiting the south lot onto eastbound McCarty will also be routed onto westbound I-70.
  • Vehicles exiting the south lot onto westbound McCarty will be routed across McCarty to southbound West Street or northbound Missouri after it is re-opened.  (current procedure)
  • Vehicles exiting the south lot onto northbound Missouri will be able to access I-70 east or I-65 north via West Street at 11th Street.
  • Vehicles coming from the neighborhood south of LOS and going eastbound on McCarty will be routed onto westbound I-70.

Vehicular traffic on McCarty (east of Capitol) will proceed eastbound on McCarty to I-70/ I-65 on ramps.

Traffic routed onto westbound I-70 will have the ability to turn around at the Harding Street exit to go eastbound on I-70 to southbound I-65.

2 -3 DPW message boards will be deployed on eastbound McCarty and southbound Meridian/ Russell to advise motorists that eastbound I-70 is closed.

1 DPW message boards will be placed on southbound West Street advising motorists that eastbound I-70 is closed.
