I-65 Bridge Closure in Summer 2018

Summer travel may prove to be a little bit challenging to and from the IUPUI campus in downtown Indianapolis.

Interstate 65, one of the city's major access highways to the campus, will be closed for 35 days sometime between July 1 - August 5.

The Indiana Department of Transportation will rehabilitate bridges along a stretch of I-65. The West St. entry and exit ramps to and from campus will not be accessible during the construction.

Roadway improvements led by the city of Indianapolis will also impact travel in and around campus.

Best practices

  • Stay informed. INDOT has created a webpage for this project and also encourages drivers to follow @INDOTEast on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to stay informed. 
  • Plan accordingly. Allow extra time to get to IUPUI and be prepared for traffic delays when leaving campus.
  • Find alternative routes. Consider using a GPS mapping app on your smartphone or tablet. Apps like Google Maps, Waze, and others may find alternative routes for your travel, even if you know where you are going.
