106th Street and College Avenue Roundabout Construction
On or after September 6, the construction of a new roundabout at 106th Street and College Avenue will begin with a 60-day full closure of the intersection. Once complete, there will be new pedestrian crosswalks and a piece of patriotic art commissioned by Clay Township and Friends of Home Place.
UPDATE: 106th Street and College Avenue - Outreach Letter November 2022
The removal of the intersection at 106th Street and North College Avenue has been completed and utility relocations continue. The work on the water main and storm water collection facilities have not gone as scheduled and to complicate matters, regional supply chain shortages of cement have further delayed the schedule. The contractor has been working closely with the City of Carmel to have the intersection open to live traffic by December with the goal of Spring 2023 to get the remaining work complete. Overcoming the aforementioned delays is a day-by-day situation that will continue to be addressed. The separate 106th Street path project is well underway to be substantially complete before the close of 2022 with some restoration work and any outstanding items to take place in the Spring 2023.
I’m sure you all would like to know what the spring construction schedule will look like in this region. Unfortunately it’s still to early for me to tell you, with any certainty, what that will look like as of now.
We greatly appreciate your patience while we work to improve our city, please email me with any questions. JKIRSH@carmel.in.gov

Roundabout Construction and Improvements
Carmel builds roundabouts because of their proven safety record; compatibility with the environment; aesthetics, and ability to make it easier for pedestrians and bicyclists. Roundabouts reduce injury accidents by about 80% and accidents overall by about 40%.
Storm Water and Drainage Improvements
The storm water and drainage projects included in Carmel Link 2.0 are designed to maintain existing storm water infrastructure, construct new infrastructure, address localized drainage issues, and reduce waterway pollution.
Street and Pathway Improvements
Widening and reconstruction of streets creates less congestion, a more responsible impact on the environment, greater aesthetic appeal and increased safety. By adding more bicycle friendly multi-use paths, Carmel encourages citizens to walk, jog, and run.
