Walnut Street and Range Line Road Roundabout
This was a standard single lane roundabout project that converted the intersection of Walnut Street and Range Line Road. Work continued to the North and South with a road diet and medians. This roundabout has become a connection point to MidTown from Range Line Road. Pedestrian and bike connectivity will be increased to fit in with the new Range Line Road theme.
UPDATE: This project started after July 12th with a full closure lasting 60 days.
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.
