This post is part of the Fishers Digest Construction Projects and Updates series.

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.

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

CLEAR PATH IMPROVEMENT PROJECT

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.

Crews closed the two ramps at 82nd Street on Monday, January 29. These ramps will remain closed throughout most of 2024.

  • Ramp from I-69 South to 82nd Street
  • Ramp from 82nd Street to I-69 South 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.

MUNICIPAL DRIVE – CONCRETE WORK

Beginning on or about March 1st, Mayer Najem will be doing some concrete work in front of the new city hall and adjacent to the road.

PROJECTS SOUTH OF 116TH STREET

WINDERMERE NEIGHBORHOOD – SIDEWALK IMPROVEMENTS

Howard Companies is continuing sidewalk improvements in the Windermere neighborhood. This work will only consist of removal and replacement of sidewalk panels which pose a toe kick trip hazard.

HERITAGE PARK BRIDGE – TRAIL CLOSURE

The City of Fishers has partnered with the City of Carmel, Clay Township, Carmel Clay Parks and Recreation, Hamilton County, and Delaware Township to connect Heritage Park at White River and Carmel’s Hazel Landing Park with a bridge over White River. This new amenity will provide enhanced connectivity between the two communities, as well as new recreational opportunities for our residents. To construct this bridge, the contractor will need to restrict access to a portion of Heritage Park’s loop trail that runs adjacent to the river through the woods beginning the week of March 4, click here for an ariel view. During this time, you’ll notice temporary construction fencing going up as we prepare for construction. Beginning the week of March 11, the contractor will work to clear the necessary trees between the park and river. Bridge construction will follow beginning in May. Construction is expected to occur Monday through Saturday beginning at 7 a.m. The bridge is expected to be complete in August 2025.
