116th Street bridge and culvert replacement between Towne Road and Spring Mill Road
On or after June 4, before the rush hour, city contractors will close 116th Street between Towne Road and Spring Mill Road to all but local traffic for approximately 65 days. This closure is necessary to complete two projects - the replacement of a bridge just east of Clay Center Road and a culvert over Williams Creek, just west of Ditch Road. The detour route uses 106th Street. The anticipated completion date of these projects is August 8, weather permitting. The map below indicates the closure and detour route.

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.
