CARMEL, IN – Here are updates on Carmel road projects. For complete details, go to

City Center Drive and Pennsylvania Street
Closure to take place on or after: Monday, October 10
This intersection will be closed 45 days for construction of a roundabout. Detour routes will be 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 n2ew 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
Closure expected to happen on or after: Monday, October 10
This intersection has been prepped and construction will begin on this new single lane roundabout. The posted detour route will use 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 street will remain open throughout this project.

Spring Mill Road Improvements
Closure took place: Tuesday, October 4
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. 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.
