Mayor Scott Fadness unveiled plans to invest $3.7 million in infrastructure upgrades to the 96th Street corridor, just east of the I-69 interchange. Investments include additional streetlights, median and landscape construction along North by Northeast Boulevard, and façade improvement grants for commercial properties along the north side of 96th Street.
“My vision is to continue to bring vibrancy to every square mile of Fishers and as a major gateway to our city, the 96th Street corridor will get the reinvestment it deserves,” said Fadness. “There is so much momentum along 96th Street with private and public investment creating a dynamic commercial center that prioritizes safety, walkability, and aesthetics.”
Since 2021, private investments along 96th Street include CRG Residential’s $135 million River Place mixed-use development at the northwest corner of Allisonville Road; Patch Development’s $27 million flex office building at Masters Road; Andretti Global’s $200 million headquarters and museum at Hague Road. Public investments include the City’s acquisition of nearly 100 acres of parkland along the White River and the completion of the Nickel Plate Trail to 96th Street with a pedestrian bridge planned for 2025 to the Indianapolis segment of the trail.
Residents along the corridor will be invited to a town hall in November to hear more about the investments being made and have the opportunity to provide feedback.
