INDOT will extend the closure of the Delaware /11th Street to I-70 eastbound on-ramp until early summer. Weather-related issues and material delivery delays caused bridge and wall foundation work to be pushed back. The ramp was originally scheduled to open mid-March.
When work is completed, motorists will be redirected to a new flyover bridge in the interchange, eliminating the major traffic shift currently in place. The traffic shift to the new flyover bridge is anticipated to begin early summer 2022. The flyover bridge is currently 85% complete and two additional bridge deck pours will occur this month.
As part of the Delaware/11th Street ramp closure, crews have installed bridge beams and will now begin pouring concrete. In total, 50% of all bridge beams needed for the North Split Reconstruction have been installed.
To improve road and safety conditions within the project area crews with Superior Construction will repair potholes, perform strip patching on the West Leg and street sweep along the East Leg of I-65/I-70. Crews began this work on March 8, and will continue through March 11. Superior will continue to regularly monitor roadway conditions within the North Split during the project.
INDOT encourages drivers to notify them of any areas where improvements can be made by submitting a report through INDOT4U at indot4u.com or by calling 1-855-INDOT4U (1-855-463-6848).
