146th Street and Gray Road – Lane Restrictions
The reconstruction of Gray Road near the new GetGo Station has begun. Weather permitting, lane restrictions will be in place until it is complete. There will not be a full closure.
Crooked Stick Drainage/ Storm Water and Multi-use Path
The normal level of a pond in Crooked Stick has been lowered to inspect and clean the storm water pipes leading into the pond. A plan to effectively remove surface pooling of water will be tied into a long desired multi-use path along the west side of Ditch road. This path project is a part of the southwest Clay Township annexation agreement.
West Carmel Drive Path Project
Construction began in October
One westbound lane on Carmel Drive remains closed for the construction of a new path to connect US31 to Keystone parkway that started in October as part of Carmel’s Active transportation plan. The path will link existing path along the north edge of West Carmel drive just west of 3rd Avenue to the intersection near N. Clark Street. This portion of the city’s path project is expected to conclude in December.
126th Street Improvements between Range Line Road and Keystone Avenue
Construction began on or after August 1, 2016
Eastbound 126th street between Keystone Parkway and Range Line Road remains closed. Road improvements have been underway, including multiuse paths, and storm water management. Traffic will be maintained in the westerly direction for the duration of the project, although the goal to open easterly travel during winter months has been impacted by extreme weather. Utilities have been relocated underground. Eight-foot multiuse paths will be installed on both the north and south side of the length of this section of the road. Curbs, gutters and storm water drainage will continue to be installed along the roadway and a median installation all combine to create a two-lane boulevard section of 126th street. An important roundabout has been partially installed at Kinzer Avenue that will be shifted to the south from the center line. This roundabout will have a stub street heading south for an anticipated future connection to Carmel Drive. The 126th Street project is anticipated to last until summer of 2017.
Detour Route: Use Main Street and 116th Street for east bound traffic. Keystone Parkway and Guilford Avenue will be main routes connecting drivers to east-bound detour routes.
Spring Mill Road Improvements
Closure took place: Tuesday, October 4
NOW OPEN TO TRAFFIC. Construction is substantially complete on Spring Mill Road from Main Street to Williams Creek, south of Dorset Road, the path and surface restoration will be completed in the spring. This is the first phase of an $8.3 million project that has added multi-purpose paths to complete pedestrian connectivity; a new median in the center of the roadway and pedestrian railings to bridges. Future phases will include work in 2017 further south on Spring Mill Road to just south of 106th Street, including a roundabout at 111th street, and a culvert lining project south of 106th street. Reith Riley is the contractor on this project.
