Lots of new changes on the Summer Champs page today:  

  1. New version of the Meet Packet - with scoring, USA LC, and payment information. 
  2. IU Policies document has been added to the page.  
  3. Important notes on the Indianapolis I-65 bridge project that may affect getting to and from the meet. 


INDOT will close portions of I-65 in Indianapolis beginning July 1, 2018 for bridge preservation projects. The estimated date to reopen the interstate is August 5, 2018. Contractors will be rehabbing seven bridges along the stretch of I-65. This is not part of the highly-publicized North Split project. 

Southbound Interstate 65 between the I-65/I-465 interchange on the northwest side of Indianapolis will be closed. During the closure, I-65 southbound traffic on the northwest side will be detoured via I-465 South or I-865 East.  

The project will also close both directions of I-65 between Meridian St. (exit 113) and 21st St. (exit 115) in downtown Indianapolis. The entrance and exit ramps at the Dr. Martin Luther King St.//West St. interchange (exit 114) will also be closed. The entrance ramp from 21st St. to northbound I-65 will remain open. 

INDOT has been coordinating with varies stakeholders near the project to discuss maintenance of traffic and receive input on how to sustain some stakeholder services during construction.

Closure Date: July 1, 2018

Estimated Open Date: August 5, 2018
