News Release

Carmel, IN – A major renovation project along the Monon Greenway in the City Center area will result in the closure of the trail (see red area on map below) beginning Monday, January 17 and continuing until late October or early November. Detours (see green line on map below) using Carmel Drive, Range Line Road and City Center Drive will be posted.

The full closure of the trail will be from the new Monon Green Boulevard (located just south of Carter Green) to the tunnel under City Center Drive. The closure will also include the east side of Carter Green’s circle drive.

This closure will accommodate a major renovation to the trail, in this section of the greenway. The project is in conjunction with Clay Township and City of Carmel’s joint effort to complete improvements to the trail in this area and tie the trail back to the existing and new buildings being constructed. The new trail section will have enhanced landscaping, tree-lined canopy, seating areas, places to gather and will be widened from 14 to 18 feet.
