INDOT will be improving I-64 from the US 150 interchange to the Sherman-Milton Bridge and I-265 from the I-64 interchange to State Street in Floyd County.

Improvements include:

* Adding a lane each way on I-64 between US 150 and I-265 within the median
* An additional exit lane from I-64 westbound to US 150 as well as lengthening the eastbound I-64 ramp from US 150
* All ramps at the I-265 interchange will be widened to two lanes, and the ramp from eastbound I-64 to I-265 will be moved to the right by shifting I-64 eastbound traffic to the left
* Adding an auxiliary lane in each direction on I-64 between the I-265 and the Cherry Street interchanges
* Adding two lanes on I-265 eastbound from I-64 to State Street and one lane from State Street to Green Valley Road
Construction is expected to begin on this project sometime in winter 2024/2025, and it's expected to take about two years to complete.

I don't know much about this area, but I remember driving on 64 EB and traffic grinding to a halt at 265 up to the ohio river. seems like a good idea to fix this  :-D

Georgia Guardrail:
I see they are reconfiguring the I-64/I-265 interchange.  I wonder if the new ramp from from I-64E to I-265 will be a flyover or flyunder?  I'm guessing also that I-64 WB will continue to go over I-265 and will just have a new bridge to get the extra lane?

I lived in the area for 11 years. Lots of commuters from Floyd and Harrison counties to Louisville and Jeffersonville. This project will help a lot.

They are moving EB I-64 lanes to be "beside" WB I-64 lanes so it will be the same flyunder. In fact since EB I-64 ramp to I-265 is already 2 lanes I'm not sure anything about the ramp will change. Other than it will be a right side exit, instead of the current left side exit.
