I-70 at its junction with I-65, east of downtown Indianapolis

In the U.S. state of Indiana, Interstate 70 travels east–west across the state passing through Indianapolis. It parallels U.S. Route 40, the old National Road.

The section of Interstate 70 along the east side of downtown Indianapolis overlaps Interstate 65. The junctions are often referred to as the "North Split" and the "South Split", forming the eastern leg of a section of freeways and surface streets locally known as the "Inner Loop" (as opposed to the "Outer Loop" of the I-465 beltway). The north split is also called the "Spaghetti Bowl" due to the visual complexity of the overlapping freeways, ghost ramps and overpasses that were originally intended as a connection to a never-built portion of Interstate 69.

In mid-March 2007, a six mile (10 km) section of Interstate 70 from the North Split to Interstate 465 east of downtown was restricted to automobiles only for the Super 70 project, a massive rebuild and expansion of that freeway. Trucks over 13 tons were forced to divert through Interstate 65 if coming from the north and use the circular Interstate 465 to the south to reconnect to Interstate 70 East. The Super 70 project was completed in November 2007.
