Interstate 865 (I-865) is an east–west auxiliary Interstate Highway near Indianapolis, Indiana. It is a short connector between I-65 and I-465, running for 4.72 miles (7.60 km). The highway was originally numbered as a branch of I-465, but was renumbered in 2002 to prevent I-465 from intersecting with itself. It is one of the few interstates to have interchanges only at its ends.
