136th Street and Gray Road Roundabout
This project involved the construction of a single-lane, three-legged roundabout at the intersection of 136th Street and Gray Road. There is now a 10-foot wide shared-use path constructed along the west side of Gray Road. The roundabout shifted the intersection slightly to the southwest corner to avoid major impacts to properties located along the east side of Gray Road. The existing intersection was signal-controlled.
Use 146th Street and 116th Street for east and west traffic. Traffic going north or south should use Keystone Parkway and Hazel Dell Parkway.

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.
