111th Street and Spring Mill Road Roundabout
The project includes constructing a boulevard section with sidewalk or multi-use path from 106th Street to Main Street along Spring Mill Road, in conjunction with a roundabout at 111th Street. The project begins at the south approach of a proposed roundabout at 111th Street and extends north to the existing roundabout at Main Street (131st Street). No modifications will be made to the 116th Street, Dorset Boulevard and Main Street roundabouts. A multi-use path will be extended south from the proposed roundabout at 111th Street to the existing roundabout at 106th Street along the east side of Spring Mill Road. Finally, modifications to separate vehicular and pedestrian traffic will be made to Hamilton County Bridges No. 31 and 32 over Williams Creek. Construction began in Spring 2017 and is currently scheduled to continue in the Spring of 2018.
For up-to-date information about this specific project, read the news release(s) from the City of Carmel below:
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.
