Carmel Drive and Old Meridian Roundabout
The City of Carmel's 120th Roundabout was built with contributing moneys from INDOT, and the City of Carmel. This is a traditional 2 lane roundabout with pedestrian crossings, and truck apron in the center. The roundabout was built over the course of 75 days (Weather & Utilities permitting). Expected to begin on or after July 9th, 2018, it was completed with festivities at the end of National Roundabout week on September 22nd 2018.

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.
