State Road 37 Improvement Project

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 2024. View detour routes 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. 

Traffic has shifted onto new pavement for SB I-69 onto WB and SB I-465. There is no access to Binford Blvd or I-465 West when traveling from 82nd Street to I-69 South. This will remain the same until the 82nd Street ramps to I-69 South close to traffic in mid-January. They should open in late 2024.

  • 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.

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 on 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.

Sunblest Neighborhood – Sidewalk Repairs

Howard Companies plan to start sidewalk repair work on Monday, January 8th. They are going to start on the northwest side of Sunblest on Heady Ln. and work west to Glenwood Ln. This work will only consist of removal and replacement of sidewalk panels which pose a toe kick trip hazard. Sidewalk within driveways is not included in the scope of this project. 

Projects South of 116th Street

106th Street & Hoosier Road

The roundabout is open to traffic, some items will still need to be addressed as the weather allows. Eastbound 106th Street will be closed to thru traffic from Fall Road to Hoosier Road on Monday, January 8th to allow for the contractor to install storm sewer just west of Windermere.  There will also be intermittent lane restrictions in place on Tuesday and Wednesday related to sod work being conducted on those days.
