Construction News 7/29/22
City of Carmel
We have a lot of construction and traffic information this week; please take time to read about the projects occurring throughout the city that impact your local travel routes.
MONON GREENWAY AT CARTER GREEN – A reminder that the Monon Greenway in the City Center area is still closed for construction. This section was temporarily opened during CarmelFest for event traffic. However, due to ongoing construction and improvements underway, we need to keep pedestrians and cyclists out of the area for safety purposes.
1st AVENUE NW TRANSMISSION LINES – This project is substantially complete; remaining items include replacing some sidewalks and adjusting manholes. The next phase will include removing the aerial lines and poles; this will take place with little to no road closures needed.
MAIN STREET ROUNDABOUTS (IN FRONT OF CARMEL HIGH SCHOOL) – Paving is scheduled to begin next week with the intersection functionally open by August 9. Work outside the roadway will continue for several weeks. The north half of Lexington will continue to be open with two-way traffic while crews move from Richland Avenue to complete the south half of Lexington. More information about this project is forthcoming.
KEYSTONE BRIDGE OVERLAYS – There will be full closures of the following bridges over Keystone Parkway. All closures are planned to begin Friday night, work through Sunday and open late Sunday or early Monday morning.
- Main Street – Scheduled for weekend of September 10
- 116th Street – Scheduled for weekend of September 17
There will be some concrete pavement patches on the southbound ramp from 116th Street to Keystone Parkway from September 19 – 25 but no closure anticipated, just down to a single lane.
KEYSTONE PARKWAY – Crews are in the process of sealing cracks on Keystone resulting in some lane restrictions for the remainder of July (weather dependent).
