City Center Drive and Guilford Road Roundabout
The Guilford Road and City Center intersection was converted into a two-lane roundabout and now includes sidewalks, lighting, and landscaping. Minor storm sewer work occurred and some existing utilities were relocated. A new shared-use trail was constructed along the west side of Guilford Road up to 126th Street where it ties into the future reconstruction of Guilford Road. The project was completed in the Summer of 2017.
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.
