The current INDOT direction risks worsening this problem. Although the reconstruction would stay within the state’s right-of-way, it involves expanding highway lanes and adding massive walls. This would eliminate green spaces, create barriers, and discourage economic activity.
INDOT’s initial plans only address the North Split of I-65 and I-70 known as the “Spaghetti Bowl.” But once construction begins, the widened lanes and new structures will dictate the direction for the rest of the inner loop.
INDOT has not provided drawings of their current direction. This visualization is based on INDOT’s 2016 line drawings, which chart the course for the project.
