Please note that Indianapolis Department of Public Works (DPW) will start Kessler bridge reconstruction work on March 1st. The bridge will be closed for two weeks while utilities are relocated. South lanes of the bridge will reopen March 15th for single lane traffic each direction. Additional 2-week closures for utilities are expected in June and August. If significant traffic concerns in Rocky Ripple arise as a result of the re-routed traffic during closures, DPW will work with Rocky Ripple to erect additional signage. This is a 2-phase project, with the north side scheduled to be completed this year by October and the south side to be completed next year, March through November, 2022.
