I-65/I-70 Bridge demolition over New York Street will impact traffic as North Split work continues


INDOT announced today the full closure of New York Street under I-65/I-70 in downtown Indianapolis. During this closure, traffic patterns on local streets in the area will also shift.

Beginning on or after Thursday, August 5, New York Street between East Street and Pine Street will be closed through August 18, weather permitting. All eastbound vehicular traffic wishing to continue on New York Street will be directed south onto Ohio Street. Motorists wishing to travel northbound can use New York Street to access College Avenue. All pedestrian traffic will be redirected to Vermont Street. Cyclists should use the farthest west lane of Pine Street currently closed to northbound vehicular traffic from Vermont Street to access the eastbound New York Street bike lane.

Local access to residents and businesses between East Street and Davidson Street will be maintained. During the closure of New York Street, local street parking will be temporarily restricted on Davidson Street.  Traffic flow in the area will be monitored throughout the duration of the closure.


Access to downtown Indianapolis will be maintained via:

  • I-70 westbound exit ramp to Michigan or Ohio St.
  • Pine St. entrance ramp to I-70 eastbound from Ohio St. and Michigan St.
  • I-65 northbound/I-70 eastbound exit ramp to Washington St.
  • I-65 northbound and southbound to Martin Luther King. Jr./West St.
  • I-65 southbound to Meridian St.
  • All existing ramps on I-70 west of the South Split
