The Indiana Department of Transportation will close the North Split, the interchange where I-65 and I-70 meet in downtown Indianapolis, starting around Saturday, May 15. This area will undergo safety and operations upgrades and improvements for the 214,000 motorists who use it daily.
The closure will last for 18 months and could significantly impact some of the IPS school bus routes. All buses that travel through the North Split interchange have been re-routed. The new routes could mean delays from 10-15 minutes in transporting students to and from school as our buses navigate their way through detours that could be crowded and slow-moving.
Please know the district will closely monitor the situation and adjust as needed.
Families of impacted students have been notified.
For questions, families can call the IPS Service Center at 317.226.4000.
