The rebuilding of a six-mile stretch of Interstate 70 on the east side of Indianapolis is nearly complete.

The Indiana Department of Transportation spokesman Will Wingfield says all lanes should be reopened in the next day or two. But he warns that commuters should still consider the area a construction zone.

INDOT says lane markers must still be placed in the westbound lanes.

The $175 million project began in February.

The project is the biggest single-season construction project INDOT has ever undertaken.

It runs from the eastern leg of Interstate 465 to downtown Indianapolis. It's the first major reconstruction on the road since it was built nearly 40 years ago.
