$1.4M project will build new lanes at I-465 and U.S. 421 / Michigan Road interchange


The Indiana Department of Transportation has awarded a $1.4 million contract to Milestone Contractors for the construction of additional lanes at the Interstate 465 and U.S. 421/Michigan Road interchange on the north side of Indianapolis.

The project seeks to increase capacity and improve traffic flow at the interchange by:

  • Lengthening the existing northbound Michigan Rd. right-turn lane to eastbound I-465,
  • Adding a second left-turn lane on southbound U.S. 421 to eastbound I-465,
  • Adding a third left-turn lane on the eastbound I-465 exit ramp to northbound U.S. 421

All interchange ramps will remain open during the project. Some lanes at the interchange will be temporarily narrowed and shifted to maintain traffic and provide space for construction.

Specific start dates and traffic restrictions will be announced before work begins. Construction is anticipated to begin this spring and be complete by November.
