The Weinbach Avenue exit off the westbound Lloyd Expressway overpass will be closed for several months due to the US 41 and Lloyd Expressway INDOT project. This closure will affect traffic heading south onto Weinbach Avenue. Visitors to campus should take the Boeke Avenue exit south off the westbound Lloyd Expressway to reach Lincoln Avenue. If traveling to campus on US 41, please take the Lincoln Avenue exit east to campus.
If you have any questions about directions, contact the Office of Admission at 800-423-8633, ext. 2468.
