Carmel to break ground on expanding Monon Boulevard

 

 

What:                  Official groundbreaking for Monon Boulevard expansion project in the heart of Midtown in Carmel.

 

When:                 Thursday, September 7, 2017 at 10 a.m.

 

Where:               There will be a tent for the news conference just north of the Carmel Water Tower, between 3rd Avenue SW and the Monon Trail, south of 2nd Street SW. Parking is available along the trail.

 

    Who:                Mayor Jim Brainard, City Engineer Jeremy Kashman.

 

 The City of Carmel announced in February major widening and expansion of the popular Monon Greenway through the heart of Midtown and the Arts & Design District – a new Monon Boulevard that will transform the current 12-foot wide path into a multi-faceted 140-foot wide right-of-way section that will include new dedicated lanes for cycling, buffer zones, sidewalks, green spaces, one-way streets with additional parking on either side of the trail and a new Midtown Plaza at 4th Street SW near the Allied Solutions corporate headquarters.

 

The expanded trail will serve a rapidly growing Midtown redevelopment area where the city is partnering with private developers to create a new, vibrant corridor connecting our City Center and Arts & Design redevelopment districts, which will include a mix of offices, restaurants, retail and residential units in what was once the city’s primary industrial area.
