INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indiana Department of Transportation had to close the westbound exit from Interstate 70 to Indianapolis International Airport Tuesday.

The emergency closure was because of a large, overhead sign that was damaged in a crash. INDOT said it must remove the sign to ensure the safety of drivers.

Eastbound drivers were still able to exit from I-70 to the airport.

There was no timetable for when the westbound exit would reopen. Motorists should seek an alternate route. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
