East 71st Street trail reopening for Labor Day weekend



Indianapolis, Indiana – The Indiana Department of Transportation announced the reopening of East 71st Street trail for Labor Day weekend.

It’s expected to open back up sometime on Friday, according to the release.

In order to install a bicycle and pedestrian protection system under I-465, after the holiday weekend, the street will close again temporarily the following week.

The protection system will reduce the time the multi-use trail is closed during construction.

Installation of this system is expected to close the multi-use trail from Tuesday until Friday.

Crews are widening the current bridge over East 71st Street to support more lanes on I-465.

East 71st Street will remain closed to car and truck traffic, and the detour follows Shadeland Avenue, 75th Street, and Binford Boulevard, according to the release.
