Hazel Dell Parkway - Cherry Tree Boulevard to 146th Street widening
This project converted an old stretch of road, with no storm water collection, to a new tree lined boulevard, with storm water collection, and added pedestrian connectivity to the area. This project was constructed under a full closure for the much of the duration of the project. Eventually it was determined to open the road despite the utility delays leaving the poles in the roadway. The city added barriers around the obstructions and opened the road to vehicular travel.
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.
