After weeks of heavy rain, road crews are back

CARMEL, IN – Heavy rainfalls in Carmel over the past several weeks have caused some delay in the City’s many road projects, although our goal is to remain on schedule and we will continue to work hard to meet that schedule. However, according to our rain gauges, more than 9 inches of rain fell in April and so far in May. We are not yet fully aware of the impact this has had on the schedule, but the rains and utility work delays could mean the completion dates for projects underway at 106th and Spring Mill and 136th and Gray will need to be extended.

The delays will also mean that some projects, particularly west of U.S. 31 and originally planned to be staggered must now be completed at the same. Motorists are reminded that over the next several weeks, the following roads will be OPEN and should be used to avoid construction: U.S. 31, Illinois Street, Shelborne Road and Michigan Road.

Here are more road construction updates:

106th and Ditch – Should be open by Friday, May 19.
Towne Road at 98th – Should be open by May 25.
Spring Mill closure – In an unrelated project, the Clay Township Regional Waste District will be closing Spring Mill Road from 106th to 111th Street to construct a sanitary line. This complete closure is expected to begin Friday and last until Aug. 11. Motorists should detour by using Illinois Street.
106th Street – Traffic restrictions are possible due to another separate project underway by the Clay Township Regional Waste District on 106th Street west of U.S. 31 .
