Construction contractors plan to begin work this week on a $1.5 million project to replace a drainage structure under Ind. 37 between 146th Street and Greenfield Avenue in Noblesville.
The Indiana Dept. of Transportation has awarded a $1.5 million contract to White Construction for the project. Crews plan to install construction zone signs along Ind. 37 beginning tomorrow, April 12.
Ind. 37 will remain open during construction. Temporary shifting of traffic lanes and overnight lane closures will be used to complete the project. 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.
Beginning on or after April 17, one lane of Ind. 37 will be closed each night from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. as the shoulders on northbound and southbound Ind. 37 are resurfaced and strengthened in preparation for future traffic shifts.
The first phase of will shift traffic 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.
Specific start dates for these traffic shifts will be announced in advance as shoulder paving progresses. All work on the project is expected to be complete this summer.
