96th Street and Gray Road Roundabout
This project is the reconstruction of the existing signalized intersection at 96th Street and Gray Road. The project will replace the existing traffic signal with a 4-leg, multi-lane roundabout. The project will consist of new curb and gutter, modification to the existing storm system, updating pedestrian connectivity with multi-use paths, updating the existing signage and pavement markings, and new street lighting. The project is anticipated to be built in phases allowing for 96th Street to remain open for east and west vehicular connectivity. There will be limited north south connectivity during construction in Summer of 2019 (75 days +/- weather and utilities depending). Expected partial closures on or after May 28th.
This project experienced significant delays as a result of unforseen storgae tanks burried below the surface within the construction limits. This roundabout is expected to be complete mid-October 2019.

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.
