Interstate 265 is an outer beltway around Louisville, Kentucky's northern, eastern, and southern sides. The portion flanking the northern side of Louisville is on the north side of the Ohio River, in Indiana. The western end of Interstate 265's northern section is at Interstate 64, allowing traffic on Interstate 64 to bypass Louisville to the north. From that western end, Interstate 265 links with Interstate 65 due north of Louisville, and then heads east and southeast across the Ohio River into Kentucky. Interstate 265 keeps going around the eastern side of the Louisville metroplex to provide a full bypass for Interstate 65.
Interstate 265 is considered an east-west highway in Indiana, so exit numbers start with zero in the west and increase as the highway continues eastward. (Kentucky uses a separate numbering scheme for Interstate 265, viewing it as a north-south route.)
Interstate 265 begins at Interstate 64 west of Louisville, Kentucky and New Albany, Indiana. Westbound travelers meeting the conclusion of Interstate 265 are presented with an "Exit 0" at the split into Interstate 64's two carriageways: they can go west toward St. Louis, or east toward New Albany and Louisville. Indiana Route 62 comes from a concurrency with Interstate 64's western leg and joins Interstate 265's first ten miles:
Exit 1 is a fountain interchange to State Street in New Albany:
Exit 3 is for Grant Line Road:
Exit 4 is for Charlestown Road:
Exit 7A is for Interstate 65 north toward Indianapolis; however, this ramp appears EAST of exit 7B, meaning the exit numbers are in the wrong order.
Exit 10 leads to Port Road and Jeffersonville, and to the eastern continuation of Indiana Route 62 toward Charlestown:
Exit 11 is for Old Salem Road:
After about 13 miles in Indiana, Interstate 265 crosses the Ohio River on the Lewis and Clark Bridge, which opened in December 2016 after decades of planning and keeping the locals waiting. Interstate 265 will go on to wind through Kentucky territory for another 38 miles. I'll leave you a photo of driving west across this Lewis and Clark Bridge:
