Carmel announces summer paving projects


2019 PAVING PROJECTS
– PROVIDED BY CARMEL STREET DEPT.

Carmel, IN - The City of Carmel Street Department has issued a list of paving projects for the 2019 summer construction season. Proper street maintenance is important to keep drivers safe, reduce damage to vehicles on the road, to keep commerce flowing and help keep property values high.

Improvements to streets around the city have already begun.  Many of the primary thoroughfares will be paved at night (between the hours of 6 p.m. and 6 a.m.) in order to be less disruptive for drivers.  Streets within subdivisions will be paved during regular work hours. 

“It is important to be reminded of the community’s need for these projects in order to keep our infrastructure well maintained. The quality of our streets is one of the many factors that make Carmel such a wonderful place to live and work. It is vital to our small business community, which relies on a good roadway network to get products and customers to their places of business. Repairing and maintaining our streets not only reduces damage to vehicles, but also enhances property values and makes our community safer,” said Mayor Jim Brainard.

A list of paving projects is below.  The list is subject to change depending upon the results of the bid process, the price of oil and other variable factors.  The total amount of roadways maintained by the Street Department is more than 460 miles. 

Paving projects are necessary to maintain transportation safety.  The Street Department completes an inspection to prioritize the order of street projects.  The street crews appreciate the cooperation and patience of residents throughout the completion of the projects.  The summer paving projects will only involve resurfacing of streets.  Repairing streets with winter pothole damage is a continuous project of the Street Department.
