Updated to reflect an extension of a closure related to the North Split project.

Drivers on Interstates 65 and 70 through downtown Indianapolis should notice a new trend in early February thanks to a shift in road closures for continued work on the interchange.

From southbound I-65 to eastbound I-70, motorists are now being redirected to temporary lanes on the newly constructed Lewis Street Bridge, while crews continue building and paving elsewhere.

Other North Split closures have been extended or adjusted due to the recent wave of extremely low temperatures. Lewis Street is scheduled to open on February 1 and Vermont Street on February 5.

Expect lane changes in February around construction of the Indianapolis Cultural Trail expansions on Indiana Avenue and South Street, as crews remove some existing pavements and sidewalks, relocate utilities and install power lines to new trail lighting.
