West Carmel Drive Path Project
Construction underway in October
A small portion of path is being added to benefit Carmel’s active transportation plan. The path will link existing paths along the north edge of West Carmel Drive from a location near Runyon Equipment Rental to about North Clark Street. This portion of the city’s path project is expected to conclude mid-December. One west bound traffic lane will remain closed for construction safety during the duration of this project.
116th Street and Hazel Dell Parkway
Preliminary work on 2017 project
Trees have been removed and utilities are being relocated out of the impacted zone of construction for this future new roundabout. This preliminary work should not interfere with connectivity for the time the utilities are being relocated. Exact date of round about construction still to be determined but will take place in 2017.
UPDATES ON EXISTING PROJECTS
126th Street Improvements
Road improvements are underway, including multiuse paths, and storm water management along 126th Street between Range Line Road and Keystone Parkway. Westbound traffic will be maintained for the duration of the project. For some of the winter months, eastbound connectivity will be re-established until spring construction resumes. Utilities continue to be relocated and work on eight-foot multiuse paths and infrastructure will transform this into a two-lane boulevard section of 126th street. A roundabout will be installed at Kinzer Avenue, shifted to the south from the center line. This roundabout will have a stub street heading south for anticipated future connection to Carmel Drive. The 126th street project is anticipated to last until summer of 2017.
Carmel Drive and Range Line Road
Construction continues and is on track for this new roundabout, curbs and sidewalks. The intersection is expected to be completed on or before November 18. Despite the closure, access to local businesses in the area has remained open throughout the duration of the project.
116th Street & Gray Road
Construction continues and is on track for completion on or near November 18. Due to the climate, landscaping on this project will begin in the spring of 2017 with completion no later than July 1, 2017.
City Center Drive and Pennsylvania Street
Work began on this intersection October 10 and the new roundabout is expected to be completed before Thanksgiving. The existing T-intersection will be fully reconstructed to a multi-lane roundabout. The reconstruction will include new full-depth pavement, curb and gutter, an enclosed storm water system, shared-use path and sidewalk with new curb ramps. The private drive for the hotel, on the west side of the roundabout, will be reconstructed. Along with the drive reconstruction, a portion of the hotel parking lot will be reconfigured to operate effectively with the new roundabout. Access to the businesses within the project limits will be maintained at all times. Access to the Hotels will be maintained from both the north (through a temporary drive), and from the existing drive to the south.
Carey Road and 136th Street
Work has begun on this new single lane roundabout and is on track for the expected completion before Thanksgiving.
Spring Mill Road Improvements
Construction has begun on Spring Mill Road from Main Street to Williams Creek, south of Dorset Road. This will be a full closure until mid-December, weather permitting.
Carey Road and Hawthorne Drive
Work on this intersection began September 26 for the construction of a new single lane roundabout. Work is on track for completion on or before November 18.
Emerson Road storm water improvement
Storm water improvements continue to be made in the Emerson Road area. The storm sewer installation will continue along the southern portion of Emerson as well as 350 feet of York Drive from Emerson, and the length of Park Lane. Local traffic will be maintained. Weather permitting, this project should be completed by Thanksgiving.
