2017 Road Improvement Plans
for Carmel Announced

CARMEL, IN – The City of Carmel has a very aggressive construction schedule for 2017 and it will be important for you to plan ahead to make sure your regular routes are available and if not, to determine your best detour before you head out the door.

To help you stay connected, please take a moment to download the CarmelLink app so that you will have access to the latest road construction updates. Please note that the CarmelLink app requires the use of the Waze app, so you will be prompted to download that as well.

While we are providing a snapshot of projects planned for 2017, please remember there are many variables that affect the exact start and finish dates. We will send notices of closures or detours closer to the beginning of construction.

South West Clay Storm Water and Multi-use Path
Several multi-use paths are being added to the South West Clay area, as the City continues to make improvements set forth in the annexation agreement with this area. Nearly all of the work will happen off the roadway, primarily along Ditch Road, Towne Road and Shelborne Road. All these projects, including roundabout construction, will improve pedestrian connectivity and storm water mitigation in this area.

Crooked Stick Drainage / Storm Water and Multi-use Path
A variety of drainage issues in the crooked Stick area will be improved by this project, which will also include construction of multi-use paths on the west side of Ditch Road between 106th and 116th Streets. Storm drainage improvements also will be included as part of this project, which is expected to be completed by mid-July, 2017.

West Carmel Drive Path Project
One westbound lane on Carmel Drive will be closed during construction of a new path to connect U.S. 31 to Keystone Parkway, a project that began last fall. Expect lane restrictions to resume once weather permits construction to begin again. The path will link existing path along the north edge of West Carmel Drive, just west of 3rd Avenue to the intersection near North Clark Street. This portion of the city’s path project is expected to conclude in April, 2017.

126th Street Improvements between Range Line Road and Keystone Avenue
Road improvements have been underway, including multi-use paths and storm water management, since last year. In 2017, traffic will be maintained in the westerly direction for the duration of the project. This project is anticipated to last until summer of 2017.
Detour Route: Use Main Street and 116th Street for eastbound traffic. Keystone Parkway and Guilford Avenue will be main routes connecting drivers to eastbound detour routes.

Spring Mill Road Improvements
Beginning in March, Spring Mill Road will be closed between Millridge Drive and 106th Street for three months to reconstruct Spring Mill Road and replace a large culvert. Meanwhile, work that began last year will continue on Spring Mill Road and motorists should expect lane restrictions and closures.

CarmelLink 2.0 Update
CARMEL LINK 2.0 is a concentrated infrastructure improvement program that will result in the completion of new roundabout intersections along Gray Road, 96th Street, Range Line Road, 116th Street, Guilford Road, Pennsylvania Street, Spring Mill Road, Towne Road, Keystone Parkway with a new interchange at 96th Street, storm water management and drainage improvement projects throughout the City of Carmel. It will also include the upgrade of a large section of Range Line Road and other miscellaneous improvements over the next three-years.
