The Indiana Dept. of Transportation will begin rebuilding I-70 from downtown to the I-465 east leg in Indianapolis later this month. The $175-million project, known as Super 70, spans six miles of the east side of Indianapolis.
The majority of the work will be completed in one construction season, with some ramp closures at Keystone Avenue/Rural Street and Emerson and Shadeland avenues in Indianapolis through Thanksgiving 2007. Trucks greater than 13 tons GVWR and any vehicles pulling trailers will be prohibited from the construction zone. Through traffic will be routed south around I-465. Trucks making deliveries to Indianapolis businesses adjacent to I-70 must find alternate routes to their destinations on city streets.
