I notice that on the bottom of the picture linked on the first post, there is a highway that seems to have an exit at the left. Then the exit seems to end or more likely it looks like it enters a tunnel or underpass. I don't see it exit anywhere. Anybody from Indianapolis have an idea what it is?
I may be ugly. I may be an American. But don't call me an ugly American.

This photo was recently taken. The interstate at the bottom of the photo is I-70. The interstate is in the process of being moved south to give FedEx more space (part of the new interstate is already being used for traffic). The exit (still under construction) is in fact the new access to the new midfield terminal complex. You can see the new tower being constructed. The tower is going to be close to 300 feet AGL. The tower has to be operational before they can start upward construction of the new terminal (so they will be able to see the entire field) because the new terminal is going to be fairly tall. It has been pretty exciting watching the construction. Seems like it has been a long time and the have a long time left before they are done.
