If your travel plans take you through Indy in the next month or so, be aware that I-65 will be closed in both directions between exits 113 & 115. Those exits usually carry a huge amount of traffic during rush hour including hundreds of employees of several large hospitals who will all be diverted to other routes. Gonna' be a zoo at best and I-70 traffic will no doubt be affected by the increase of lost drivers. I wouldn't try to go near downtown Indy unless you have no choice and know exactly how to get where you're going. GO AROUND ON I-465!

The closure starts tomorrow, July 1, and is estimated to last until August 5.

Amen! I heard the normal traffic number was 130,000 vehicles daily. The stoppage will dump the normal I-65 traffic onto surface streets. That also means lots of extra semi truck traffic will fill up on I-465.

Congestion

Cadiz has 3 stop lights. Thats all the traffic
congestion I want to deal with. LDS
Around here they'd take out those stoplights and put in round-abouts. Just a very expensive way to confuse as many drivers as possible.

Hey Glenn. Not Doug but he will add whatever he can, probably after sowing golf seeds. There has been lots of patching and a few total re-paving (worth a couple ten's of millions), in addition to the normal construction. The roads still suck even after most of the money spend already. A part of the I-65 stoppage Doug mentioned is that they need to fix 7 bridges along that stretch of I-65, because they are falling apart in spots.

P.S., just received the latest (August 2018) Handloader yesterday, and it has an article with 280 loads for the 204 Ruger. Lots of different powders and bullets, and the test vehicle was a CZ527.

They're constantly "fixing" the roads around here, Glenn. Some of 'em have been so fixed they had to done over again. Last time they did a big interstate job up here, they closed 65 just south of the current fix and repaved a section through the downtown area. The only problem was the fix raised the road enough that semi trucks couldn't clear several underpasses that they could before the fix. They noticed when truckers started knocking the tops off their trailers because the geniuses at INDOT never changed the clearance signs.

There are some pot holes in SB 65, south of 465, that will bounce a semi tire off the road. It has reduced tailgating, though. You gotta' have enough space ahead of you to spot the holes and dodge around 'em.

A buddy who works for the Dept of Public Works told me a month ago there isn't enough money in the entire city budget to fix the current list of pot holes. And the list is growing faster than they can fix 'em. It's a losing game.
