Current road construction
West Carmel Drive Path Project
Started in October
A small portion of path is being added to the benefit of Carmel’s Active transportation plan. The path will link existing path along the north edge of West Carmel drive from about Runyon equipment rental to the existing pedestrian connectivity near N. Clark Street. This portion of the city’s path project is expected to conclude mid-December. One westbound lane will remain closed for construction safety for the duration of this project.
126th Street Improvements between Range Line Road and Keystone Avenue
Road improvements are underway, including multiuse paths and storm water management along 126th street between Range Line Road and Keystone Parkway. Traffic will be maintained in the westbound direction for the duration of the project, although for some of the winter months eastbound connectivity will be reestablished until spring construction resumes. Utilities continue to be relocated underground. The 126th Street project is anticipated to last until summer of 2017. Detour: 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.
City Center Drive and Pennsylvania Street
Construction expected to be complete Dec. 9
This intersection is closed for construction of a roundabout. Detour routes are posted, using Carmel Drive, Guilford Road and 116th Street. 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. Access to the businesses within the project limits will be maintained at all times.
Carey Road and 136th Street
Construction expected to be complete Dec. 16
Construction has begun on this new single lane roundabout. The posted detour route uses Gray Road and Keystone Parkway to accommodate northbound and southbound traffic. Eastbound and westbound traffic will use Main Street and 146th Street. The intersection of Keystone Parkway and 136th St. will remain open throughout this project.
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. The posted detour route follows Illinois Street for all north-south traffic. Dorset Road will maintain east/west connectivity throughout the scheduled construction. This is the first phase of an $8.3 million project that will add multi-purpose paths to complete pedestrian connectivity, a new median in the center of the roadway and pedestrian railings to bridges.
