Work set to begin on Carmel segment of new U.S. 31

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Road work is set to begin on a major highway north of Indianapolis.

The Indiana Department of Transportation says contractors are beginning work on upgrades to U.S. 31 in Carmel.

A $141 million contract includes interchange improvements at Interstate 465 and new roundabout interchanges at 106th, 116th, 131st and 136th streets. They're expected to open to traffic by the end of 2015.

Ramp restrictions on I-465 were set to begin Thursday night.

INDOT says motorists should expect off-road daytime construction along U.S. 31 and at the I-465 interchange. All work requiring restrictions on the highway will take place during overnight hours.


  • wrong info????
    Don't you mean I-69 and Hwy. 37????? Roundabouts are already in place on U.S. 31. ??????????
  • It's INDOT's Money
    Hey fkgaza, I thinks it's the State that is investing in Carmel, although Carmel sure negotiated for the RAB's as opposed to standard ramps. Carmel also did plan ahead on the parallel side streets. Since the governor and many of the powerful legislators live in the area, Carmel also seems to have received special treatment compared to other cities and towns throughout the state. It all should be real nice when completed in +-'16.

    Thank goodness Carmel continues to invest in its infrastructure with a focus on making the northside a better place. Not just fixing, but better. There subtle but relentless pursuit of this I feel has result in companies such as ExactTarget remaining in Indianapolis. You have to create a place where talent wants to live if you are going to grow.
