Interstate 69 north
Binford Boulevard was constructed in the late 1950s as a new alignment for Indiana 37, replacing the routing along Allisonville Road (later Indiana 37A). The divided highway travels northeast from Keystone Avenue and Fall Creek Parkway to East 75th Street and the beginning of Interstate 69. Photo taken 10/16/04.
Interstate 69 north sees a loop ramp onto Interstate 465 west to Allisonville and Carmel. The ramps to the beltway are signed as Exit 200 on southbound but unnumbered on northbound. Photo taken 10/16/04.
Attached to the directional ramp from Interstate 69 & Indiana 37 south to Interstate 465 south is the one-mile overhead for Exit 201 (82nd Street). Access is only available to the westbound direction of the Indianapolis beltway here. Indiana 37 joins Interstate 69 north from Interstate 465 north. Photo taken 10/16/04.
Interstate 69 north at Interstate 465 west. Interstate 465 carries U.S. 52 to Interstate 865 west amid a bevy of other routes including U.S. 31, U.S. 421 and Indiana 37, all of which are unsigned along their combined routing on the beltway. The loop freeway opened by 1970 and replaced Indiana 100.1 Photo taken 10/16/04.
Travelers needing access to Interstate 465 south from Interstate 69 / Binford Boulevard north need only continue to Exit 201 to u-turn for the southbound on-ramp to the beltway. This state-named shield was posted after the loop ramp onto Interstate 465 north. Photo taken 10/16/04.

A folded diamond interchange joins East 82nd Street with Interstate 69 & Indiana 37 near Community Hospital-North in Castleton. 82nd Street heads west to Castleton Square mall and Allisonville and east to Fall Creek Road. The northbound lanes were widened to four in 2008 from Exit 200 to Exit 205; a similar project will do the same to the southbound lanes in 2013.

Interstate 69 expands to five lanes to prepare for Exit 205 with Indiana 37 north and 116th Street. Indiana 37 continues north from Interstate 69 as a four-lane expressway to the Hamilton County seat of Noblesville. Both Fishers and Noblesville are among the fastest growing communities in Indiana, resulting in daily traffic backups on the approach to this exit. North of Noblesville, Indiana 37 becomes a two-lane highway north toward Elwood and Marion. Photo taken 02/06/12.
The Conner Prairie Living History Museum and the Hamilton County Visitors Center can be reached by taking 116th Street to the west into Fishers from Exit 205. Photo taken 02/06/12.
Interstate 69 expands to six lanes at Exit 205, which sees the right two lanes exit off toward Indiana 37 north and 116th Street via a collector distributor ramp. Currently, traffic bound for Indiana 37 north must change lanes with the off ramp from 116th Street to Interstate 69 north. The left four lanes continue north toward Fort Wayne, but only the right two lanes continue a mile up the road. Future work in 2012 will redesign the exit to eliminate weaving for the two exits. The planned road work, part of INDOT's Operation Indy Commute, will see the left three lanes diverted onto Interstate 69 north with the right three lanes exiting off toward Exit 205.

Indiana 38 used to continue east through the town of Pendleton via State Street, but that stretch was decommissioned from Interstate 69 to U.S. 36, Indiana 9 & Indiana 67 east of town. This decommissioning, done in 2004, severed the highway for a year until it was rerouted along Interstate 69 and U.S. 36, Indiana 9 & Indiana 67 to bypass Pendleton. Photo taken 02/06/12.
