The following is your weekly Fishers Construction update provided by the City of Fishers. We usually breakdown everything you need to know in our newsletter on Monday/Tuesday. However, we’re doing this a few days early for the holidays. If you aren’t subscribed, give it a shot!

ROAD NOTICE UPDATES FOR THE WEEK OF DECEMBER 18

While this list encompasses numerous closures in Fishers, it does not list all DPW projects throughout the city. All construction activities are weather permitting and could change. Plan for extra travel time in construction zones and drive distraction free. Find more details about the Hands-Free Indiana law here that took effect July 1, 2020. We appreciate motorists’ patience and caution while driving through construction sites.

STATE ROAD 37 AND 141ST STREET

A pre-construction phase at SR 37 & 141st Street is currently in place. During this phase, 141st Street will be a Right-In-Right-Out (RIRO) traffic configuration. This is not the permanent configuration. This will allow for traffic to flow more freely along SR 37 until the next phases of construction can be activated. This will eliminate backups along SR 37 that have caused dangerous stops to the free flow traffic and backups on the 146th Street interchange. Again, this is not the permanent configuration for 141st Street. The full timeline for the 141st Street interchange will be provided after project bids are accepted in the Spring of 2024. View detour routes here. View how to merge safely onto Northbound SR 37 from 141st Street here and onto Southbound SR 37 from 141st Street here. To navigate the merge, remember:

  • Use the accel lane to gain speed, not stop
  • Use your mirrors and pay attention
  • Look for a gap in SR 37 traffic and safely merge

I-465 & I-69

Drivers will see an increase in construction along the I-69 corridor in the coming months. This work will focus on reconfiguring the interchange at I-465 and I-69. New ramps will provide direct movements from eastbound I-465 and northbound I-465 to northbound I-69. Binford Blvd. will also be reconstructed to separate local traffic from traffic entering and exiting I-69 and I-465. Access to I-69 from Binford Blvd. will remain open. In the coming weeks, drivers on WB I-465 can expect to see traffic being shifted onto new pavement between I-69 and Allisonville Road. Traffic will also be shifted onto new pavement for SB I-69 onto WB and SB I-465. The ramp from 82nd Street to I-69 North is open. The ramp from I-69 North to 82nd Street will remain closed through mid-2024. For detour routes and additional project information, visit clearpath465.com

PROJECTS NORTH OF 116TH STREET

146TH STREET & ALLISONVILLE ROAD – HAMILTON COUNTY PROJECT

Phase 2A traffic restrictions are in effect. These restrictions eliminate left turn movements from 146th Street onto Allisonville Road and reopen to two through lanes on eastbound and westbound 146th Street. Periodic lane closures may be necessary to complete this work. Please watch for flaggers and workers in and around the construction zone. Construction crews are continuing to work on storm sewer installation and roadway grading. Crews are continuing work on the widening of the westbound bridge over the White River. The contractor has installed cofferdams and delineating buoys in the White River for pier construction. The contractor is continuing work of the bridge foundations and substructure units. Please use caution if canoeing or tubing through the work zone. For additional project information, visit the 146th St. & Allisonville Rd. Project Page here.

PROJECTS SOUTH OF 116TH STREET

106TH STREET & HOOSIER ROAD

The intersection of 106th Street and Hoosier Road is currently closed for the construction of a roundabout. Access into and out of the Windermere subdivision will be on Geist Road via Governors Lane. Detour route can be found here. For additional project information, view the Capital Project Dashboard here. Due to utility conflicts and drainage revisions, the city worked with the consultant on record on updating the plans to this intersection. The contractor had to pause work while we work through the design changes and revisions. Currently we are back up and running on construction and the contractor is working as hard as possible to get the roundabout constructed and open to traffic. The 60 days of closure had to be extended to afford the contractor time to finish the work before the weather changes. The schedule for reopening the intersection is currently being refined with the contractor but they have assured us that this intersection will be opened before the end of the year with some cleanup work extending into next spring. We apologize for the inconvenience while we navigate these items with the utilities, Hamilton County Surveyors office, the contractor, and our consultant.
