$1.5M drainage project underway for Ind. 37


The Indiana Dept. of Transportation has awarded a $1.5 million contract to White Construction to replace a drainage structure under Ind. 37 between 146th Street and Greenfield Avenue in Noblesville.

Ind. 37 will remain open during the construction, but temporary shifting of traffic lanes and overnight lane closures will be used to complete the project.

INDOT said two lanes will be maintained in each direction during peak traffic times, and single-lane closures in each direction will be scheduled between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.

The first phase of construction will install temporary pavement along the outside shoulders of the highway, requiring overnight right-lane closures. The temporary pavement will allow more width for traffic to be shifted away from the median to provide room for construction. The second phase will shift traffic toward the median to allow construction to be completed along the outside shoulders.

INDOT said a specific start date will be announced after a schedule is provided by contractors, and all work on the project is expected to be complete this summer.
