Carmel traffic: An update on the next week of driving in and around Carmel


Old Meridian Street ramp closureOn or after Friday, July 10, crews plan to shift traffic on US 31 to the new pavement (outside lanes) between 103rd and Old Meridian streets. Once traffic on US 31 is shifted, construction will begin on the new inside lanes.

Traffic will also be shifted on 106th and 116th streets. Both streets will be reduced to one lane in each direction across US 31 with additional turn lanes. Motorists will notice extended left-turning distances to and from US 31 and should pay extra attention when driving in the area. Signage and pavement markings will indicate new travel paths and lane designations for the temporary configuration. While lane configurations will be different in this area, all turning movements will remain open.

Carmel Drive/126th Street is now open to traffic across US 31, and the Main Street roundabout interchange at US 31 is expected to open to its permanent configuration with two lanes in each direction before the US 31 traffic shift.

Old Meridian Street Ramp Closure

Beginning on or after Monday,  July 13, crews plan to close the slip ramp from northbound US 31 to Old Meridian Street to allow for storm sewer installation and pavement work. This closure is expected to last approximately 30 days. Access to all businesses will remain open.
