It will be much better when it's finished - it's called "delayed gratification" - but then as a teamster you probably wouldn't understand.

Hmmm....how else do you expect them to complete work. It needed to be done...that was obvious to everyone. That have done a wonderful job with this project. It looks great and the fact that they have been able to do so much in a fairly short period of time is exceptional. You hate Super 70? Hate seems to be a bit too strong a word for something as silly as road construction. I drove this route twice daily at the height of rush hour traffic...with relatively few problems. To be perfectly honest...I had expected it to be more difficult to get through. I have to admit though, while I will be happy too see the construction end...I'm not looking forward to the return of semi traffic.

I think they did a wonderful job. Completeing 10 lanes of CONCRETE and bridges in less than 8/0 months.

Carmel are you paying attention!

Whatsamatter? You and your Bubba Truck get a $1000 fine in the work zone that's clearly marked NO TRUCKS over a certain weight? Get over it, "genious."

Yeah, it had to be done. But I am looking forward to the end of the semi-traffic on 465 southbound! Some days, traffic will back up all the way from I65 on the southside, all the way back up to I-70 on the east side--and it can happen any time from about 3:45 to 6:30. I have to drive that way several times a week during those times, and while sometimes it's not bad (traffic backed up to Emerson), other times it's horrible. And traffic stations never comment on it, either.

I agree with you 100%. I live right in front of 465 on the eastside.There is only a woods separating my house from the noise.The truck noise is horrible between7 and 9 in the morning and again between 3 and 7 at night

They have done a pretty good job all in all to repair a road that was in desperate need. My question to the people here that are complaining is have you ever been outside of Indiana? I mean drive through Houston, Chicago, Atlanta or any other major city and you are going to run into traffic. Just because you can't cruise through at 60-70 during rush hour you want to cry about it. Well this city is growing and i'm affraid to say it's only going to get worse.

Umm...what? Two things:

1. It was "broke" and did need to be repaired. The road surfaces needed to be repaired and it some cases replaced. Redoing it now will safe us money and time in the furture.

2. Where have you been? They have already announced a project to ease congestion at I-464 & I-69.

Ever notice these Union guys get on here and just prove the negative stereotypes? For anyone that complains about Super 70, or Hyperfix a few years ago, it's clear they never went through southern Indiana during that ten year period when they were "fixing" I-65 just north of Louisville. Nor have they been through the I-70 mess in Dayton that, at last check, has been going for several years now. But then again, everyone has to complain about something. That's how they feel better about themselves.

Before the super 70 project I drove 465 to shadeland because it was fast but I have driven the super 70 the whole time and loved it what there was one big semi accident it was nice driving a stretch of road not have big trucks riding your butt. I wish it would stay no semi's.

No semi's and no teamsters sounds right to me.

Ain't that the truth. Atlanta is 12 lanes on each going in or out on the north side and it gets backed up two or three times each day. I know I used to drive it in a simi for 24 yrs. before I retired.

I agree, they always have to complain about something. We have it better than some cities for crying out loud. I don't think they will ever be done in Dayton!

LA is worst! You have to leave your place 4 hours early if you have to go from one side of the town to another area.

But when it comes down to it what vehicle is more dangerous. Mine or the semi think about it.
