   Southbound I-65 Ramp to Eastbound I-465 Closes April 10 for Up to 150 days

Weather permitting, construction contractors plan to close the southbound I-65 ramp to eastbound I-465 on the south side of Indianapolis for up to 150 days starting on Monday, April 10 after 9 p.m.

During the ramp closure, signed detours will direct traffic to Southport Road (Exit 103) to return northbound on I-65 and access eastbound I-465.

Overnight closures of up to two lanes of westbound I-465 and the northbound I-65 ramp to westbound I-465 continue for bridge demolition starting each night at 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. The overnight lane and ramp closures allow crews to remove the I-65 bridges above as part of the $19.6 million project rebuilding six I-65 bridges over I-465 and Lick Creek.

What to expect ahead

Two lanes of southbound I-65 are shifted across the median to share the widened northbound side of the interstate. Opposing directions of traffic are separated by temporary concrete barriers. Traffic is expected to remain in this Phase 1 configuration through mid-summer.

Later this summer, both directions of I-65 traffic will be shifted to share the southbound side of the interstate while construction is completed on the northbound side. Phase 2 will also close the northbound I-65 ramp to westbound I-465 for up to 150 days.

Bridge construction is expected to be substantially complete, with all lanes and ramps open to traffic, before the end of this year. 

Traffic during construction

Traffic lane shifts, median crossovers and ramp closures are necessary to complete the project in phases while maximizing safety and mobility. Northbound I-65 will have three lanes and southbound I-65 will have two lanes throughout construction, except for overnight lane closures.

I-465 underneath the bridges have closed shoulders and overnight lane closures. Specific dates and traffic restrictions will be announced in advance and communicated to motorists using electronic message signs. All interstate lane closures will be scheduled between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.

The I-65 and I-465 speed limits are reduced to 55 mph through the work zone and further reduced to 45 mph when workers are present and lights are flashing.

Stay informed

   Lane Closures Scheduled to Begin on Elmhurst Road Over the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90)

Local road lane closures are scheduled to begin next week as construction resumes at the Elmhurst Road Interchange Project on the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90) with local roadway improvement work.

The local road lane closures are necessary to provide a work zone and safely accommodate the completion of construction activities. Electronic message signs will be put in place to alert drivers to the lane closures and traffic patterns.

Weather permitting, on Monday, April 3, Elmhurst Road traffic south of the interchange will be reduced to one lane in both directions for pavement removal and replacement. This stage of construction is schedule to continue into mid-May.

In addition during the week of April 3, traffic will also be reduced to one lane in each direction on Oakton Street and Elmhurst Road to complete intersection and local road work. Traffic is scheduled to remain in this configuration until work is completed this summer.

Currently, the ramps carrying traffic to and from the east are open to traffic with the ongoing construction work zone adjacent to Elmhurst Road.

Local road lane closures are being coordinated with the Elk Grove Village, the City of Des Plaines, the Village of Mount Prospect, Cook County and the Illinois Department of Transportation, along with local police and fire departments.

The Illinois Tollway is scheduled to complete the Elmhurst Road Interchange Project in 2017. Prior to opening the new diverging diamond interchange configuration and new ramps to carry traffic to and from the west, work includes completion of pavement on Elmhurst Road, installation of new permanent traffic signals, lighting and pavement markings necessary to safely open the interchange in the configuration. In addition, remaining local road improvements include completion of work at the Oakton intersection and reconstruction of Elmhurst Road pavement south of the interchange.

   Southbound I-75 Detroit To Downriver

COUNTY:
Wayne
COMMUNITIES AFFECTED:
Detroit, Melvindale, River Rouge, Lincoln Park, Allen Park, Taylor, Southgate, and Brownstown Township

START DATE:
Weekend of Feb. 4, 2017

ESTIMATED END DATE:
Late 2018

PROJECT DETAILS:
Southbound I-75 will be closed from Detroit to Downriver in less than three weeks. This closure is part of the Michigan Department of Transportation's (MDOT) approximately $200 million investment in major repairs over a two-year period.

The detour begins at I-96 in Detroit to Northline Road in 2017; during 2018, the detour will be from I-96 to Sibley Road. Only southbound I-75 will be closed during the two-year period while northbound I-75 will remain open at all times.

The project includes:

  • Removing and replacing all concrete on the I-75 Rouge River bridge, the largest concrete surface in Michigan (approximately 20 football fields).
  • Replacing concrete on the I-75 bridge at Fort Street, south of Springwells Road.
  • Removing the Goddard Street bridge over I-75 and replacing it with two smaller bridges.
  • Repairing 13 other bridges along I-75 through the Downriver communities.
  • Adding intelligent transportation system (ITS) equipment. ITS includes a combination of electronic, telecommunication and information technology MDOT uses to improve safety and travel times on the transportation system.

The decision to close one direction of I-75 is based on multiple factors, including:

  • Speed: Rebuilding one side of the bridge at a time without traffic present will result in the project being completed in the shortest amount of time.
  • Cost: The shorter project duration resulting from rebuilding one side of bridge at a time will result in the lowest overall project cost.
  • Safety: If the bridge was constructed in sections with both directions of traffic sharing one side, there wouldn't be adequate room for emergency crews to respond to incidents on the bridge.
  • Mobility: Maintaining limited two-way traffic on one side of freeway would cause back-ups in both directions, as opposed to one direction. 
  • Quality: Rebuilding one side of the bridge at a time will allow construction to proceed without interruption since there will be no need to maintain traffic. The decreased vibrations from nearby traffic will result in the best quality workmanship.
  • Duration: By closing southbound I-75, construction activity will move faster since not as much time and effort will be needed to shift traffic.

Motorists will see signs announcing the closure along I-75 to allow residents, businesses, and drivers plenty of time to prepare alternate routes. Detours and details can be found at the project website, www.75rougeriver.com.

The detour route is southbound I-75 to westbound I-96, then southbound I-275 to southbound I-75 in Monroe. Other alternate routes include I-94, M-85 (Fort Street), Jefferson Avenue, and Dix Highway.
