The U.S. Department of Transportation has awarded Indiana a $70 million grant to finish the I-465/I-69 Clear Path 465 project in on the northeast side of Indianapolis. The department says the project includes reconstructing and expanding the I-465/I-69 interchange, among other improvements.

The Infrastructure for Rebuilding America project also includes improvements to about 4.5 miles of I-465 from the White River to Fall Creek and just under a mile of I-69 from I-465 to 82nd Street.

Governor Eric Holcomb says the project will make travel safer and more convenient in the area.

“I want to thank Senator Todd Young and Senator Mike Braun and all of our federal partners for joining with us to build on Indiana’s strong position as the Crossroads of America,” said Holcomb. 

The project includes: 

  • I-465 re-alignment with additional auxiliary and ramp lanes as needed
  • Improvements to three eastbound I-465 exits
  • New ramp lanes from northbound I-465 to northbound I-69
  • Additional lanes on Binford Boulevard
  • Ramps to I-465/Binford Blvd
  • Eliminating the weave from SB 82nd St. to Binford Blvd. (crossing SB I-69 traffic)
  • New ramp lanes on Southbound I-69
  • Southbound Binford Boulevard Collector-Distributor relocation.

USDOT says the work is expected to reduce travel time and improve safety on the heavily-traveled highways.
