126th Street between State Road 37 and Cumberland Road is closed today through Thursday, April 4 for storm sewer installation across 126th Street. Middleton Place still has access from the east. The closure coincides with Hamilton Southeastern Schools’ Spring Break, to take advantage of reduced traffic counts.
This closure is part of a City of Fishers engineering project to construct a roundabout at the intersection of 126th Street and Parkside Drive. As part of the project, the median will be transitioned to a raised concrete curb at the intersection of 126th Street and Enterprise Drive/Reynolds Drive to allow for right-turn-only movements. Left turns in this area will be use the roundabout to improve safety and traffic flow.
126th Street will be open but reduced to one lane in each direction for the duration of the project. Parkside Drive at 126th Street will be closed during the construction of the north side of the roundabout. These closure dates are still being determined.
The estimated construction cost of this project is $1.7 million. The project is 90 percent federally funded, and 10 percent locally funded.
The roundabout project is estimated to be completed in September 2019.
