The 100-day project with a full road closure is expected to begin in late May. A Monon Greenway bridge replacement at Smoky Row Road is set to begin on or after June 1 and lead to a full closure of the trail in this area for 30 days.

The city will also continue burying utility lines along Veterans Way in Midtown, which will lead to partial road closures. A full closure at Main Street is expected in March.

Work to expand the Japanese Garden south of City Hall to Carmel Drive will resume this spring. The project, which includes improvements to the adjacent Monon Greenway, is expected to last until October.

Other projects include continued reconstruction of Range Line Road between Carmel Drive and 116th Street, a slip lane at Smoky Row Road and Keystone Parkway (45 days, on or after May 26), reconstruction of College Avenue between 96th Street to 106th Street (nine months, beginning on or after July 1), construction of a pathway along Gray Road between 106th and 116th Streets (90 days, date TBD) and reconstruction of 3rd Ave. SW between Elm Street and City Center Drive (180 days, date TBD).
