The Indiana Department of Transportation will close the Delaware/11th Street on-ramp to I-70 EB starting on or after Tuesday, April 18 through Friday, April 28, weather permitting.

During this closure, North Split crews will build a permanent barrier wall to allow safe merging onto I-70 EB. Once the ramp reopens, two lanes will be open from I-65 SB to I-70 EB and the ramp lane will merge onto I-70 EB.

As a reminder, under the permanent North Split interchange configuration, there will no longer be access to I-65 SB via the Delaware/11th Street ramp.


During the ramp closure, access to I-70 EB will be maintained via the Pine Street and Rural Street ramps and Martin Luther King Jr. Street.

Access to downtown Indianapolis will be maintained via:  

  • I-70 WB collector/distributor (C/D) exit ramp to Michigan Street  
  • I-65 NB/ I-70 EB exit ramp to Washington Street  
  • I-70 WB to Martin Luther King. Jr/West Street  
  • I-65 SB to Meridian Street  
  • I-65 SB to West Street 
  • All existing ramps on I-70 west of the South Split   

The North Split reconstruction project will provide safer, more free-flowing travel for the thousands of motorists who use the interchange each day. Once complete, the new system will take up a smaller footprint and increase the walkability of surrounding downtown Indianapolis neighborhoods. The redesigned interchange will improve safety by eliminating weaving and merging, leading to better traffic flow. 

INDOT encourages drivers to slow down, exercise caution and drive distraction-free through all work zones.
