Range Line Road streetscape with on-street parking
Range Line Road is a major north-south thoroughfare that runs through the heart of Carmel and the City's redevelopment areas, such as Midtown, City Center and the future Proscenium project. The road is two-lanes wide in the Arts & Design District, expands to four lanes and a middle turn lane from 4th Street to 116th Street. The City has budgeted an estimated $13.5 million in funds from its most recent construction bond issue to pay for a project that will make the street less congested and more safe for both motorists and pedestrians.
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.
