The Main Street Project was made possible by a $4.6 million federal grant that required a $1.6 million local match.

Night Work Begins Monday for Operation Indy Commute I-65
Sherman Drive Bridge Over I-465 to Close Dec. 1
INDIANAPOLIS – Construction is scheduled to begin next week on Operation Indy Commute I-65, a project seeking to strategically reduce recurring commuting bottlenecks at the south side I-465 and I-65 interchange area.
Walsh Construction, the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) contractor for the $40 million interchange improvement and added travel lanes project, plans to begin overnight restrictions Monday, Oct. 7 on southbound I-65 between I-465 and Southport Road. The restrictions for temporary pavement widening will be between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. and are expected to continue for approximately two weeks. Restrictions on northbound I-65 are scheduled to begin the following week (Monday, Oct. 14).
The overnight restrictions will allow Walsh to place temporary pavement along the I-65 median in preparation for a future traffic shift. Three lanes will be maintained in each direction on both I-65 and I-465 during peak traffic times, and interstate lane closures may be required at night and other off-peak times. Traffic will be maintained on the existing I-65 and I-465 ramps until improvements are complete. The project is expected to be complete by spring 2015.
Widening of I-465 will require reconstruction of the Sherman Drive bridge over I-465 between I-65 and Emerson Avenue. Walsh plans to close the bridge on or after Dec. 1. Sherman Drive traffic will be detoured to cross over I-465 on Carson Avenue. The bridge is expected to reopen by September 2014.
The contract allows for closure of up to 7 days on the westbound Southport Road entrance ramp to northbound I-65 to enhance worker and motorist safety as the ramp is connected to a new auxiliary lane to I-465.
Operation Indy Commute I-65 improvements include:
Motorists, businesses and residents are encouraged to learn more about the Operation Indy Commute I-65 project at www.indycommute.indot.in.gov. Subscribe to project email updates by clicking the red GovDelivery envelope icon found on any INDOT web page. Updates will also be provided on the Indiana Department of Transportation: East Central Facebook page and on Twitter @INDOT_ECentral.

On Friday the 10th after school lets out the two-way condition currently between Albany and the alley will be returned back to a One-Way north condition. So when everybody returns to school on Monday the 13th, they can anticipate being back to traffic patterns that were in place prior to the project beginning. There will remain to be the surface paving at the end of the project and therefore the roadway will be temporary striped with double yellow centerline striping on Main and stop bars on the side streets. This phase will be open to traffic but will have remaining items to be completed outside of the roadway so anticipate work to continue from the parking areas along Main Street.

There will potentially be an overlap of Phase I and Phase III closure by as much as five days.
The newsletter update for the Main Street project linked below has more information and updated phasing and schedule due to the progress being achieved in the first phases.
