INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Construction work on the city’s south side caused major back ups on Interstate 465 Saturday morning.

INDOT reported around 8:30 a.m. that the right two lanes of eastbound I-465 were closed near Interstate 65 due to construction work.

Drivers could expect delays while traveling eastbound on I-465 near mile 1.

Indiana State Police dispatchers said around 10:30 a.m. traffic back up was still an issue. Back ups started at mile 1 on I-465 eastbound and stretched back to the 3.1 mile marker, near Harding Street.

Only eastbound lanes were impacted by the construction work. State Police said shortly after 11 a.m. that the construction work was cleared and lanes were re-opened. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
