  • Carmel Drive and Pennsylvania Street (set for completion in early July)
  • 96th Street and Haverstick Road (set for completion by July 4)
  • 116th Street and Guilford Road (125-day partial closure beginning after July 15)

Range Line Road will be renovated between City Center Drive and Elm Street to reduce lanes and add medians, bike lanes and raised pedestrian crosswalks.

Keystone Parkway will experience lane restrictions for approximately 60 days beginning on or after July 1 for repaving.

Clay Township is funding three of the roundabout projects, while the others will be funded through previously issued bonds, the engineering budget and federal highway sources.

“Carmel continues to grow with new residents and corporate employers, which means the number of vehicles using our road network is also growing,” Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard stated in a press release. “It is important that we keep ahead of the growth and keep our roadways safe and efficient for all of our residents, visitors and workers.”

According to the City of Carmel, the city’s five-year average fatality accident rate in 2019 was 2.136 per 100,000, compared to 11.585 in Indianapolis, 16.756 in Anderson, 11.358 in Ft. Wayne, 20.379 in Kokomo and 30.058 in Columbus.
