Last road closure from highway blast lifted

All the traffic restrictions caused by a propane tanker explosion at Interstates 465 and 69 in Indianapolis have been lifted.

State highway crews early Tuesday opened the ramp from southbound I-69 onto I-465 to the city’s east side after workers
finished replacing a concrete support column and fixing other damage caused by last week’s crash and explosion.

The
state Department of Transportation on Monday opened all three lanes of eastbound I-465 traffic on the city’s northeast side
after it said tests found no structural damage to a bridge over the I-69 ramp.

State police have ticketed the 73-year-old
trucker for unsafe lane movement and driving too fast to avoid a collision.
