North-South Connector

This project will resume in the spring of 2021. The final element of this project is the new, two-lane roundabout on Oak St. at CR 850 E. (Cooper Rd.).

Road closures anticipated:

  • CR 850 E. south of Oak St. beginning in the spring of 2021 for approximately 30 days.

Estimated completion: Summer 2021

Background: A new roadway segment will connect the intersection of CR 850 E./Cooper Rd. with CR 875 E. to the north. The design includes a roundabout at the intersection of CR 850 E./Cooper Rd. and Oak St. as well as a roundabout at the intersection of CR 875 E. and Whitestown Rd. The project will also include a 10-foot multi-use path.

Phase 2 Gravity Sewer on CR 875 East

Part of this project is tied to the North-South Connector project. This project begins at CR 550 S. and travels south picking up several existing homes via gravity.

Estimated completion: Spring to early summer 2021

Oak Street Sewer

The sewer will be located on the north side of Oak St. and will extend west of Cooper Rd. traveling east to just west of Irish Hill.

Estimated completion: Spring 2021

Progress status update: 

The sewer work along Oak St. was suspended last August at Lakeview Dr. when it was determined that a previously unidentified natural gas pipe system was in the way of the sewer project. Since that time, the contractor and the Town could only wait for Vectren to confirm conditions and develop a plan to relocate their underground pipes. 

Beginning as early as the week of January 18, crews will return to the Oak St. sanitary sewer project to install sewers along the north side of Oak St. in the area of CR 850 E./Cooper Rd. This work is critical to get installed before the roundabout construction activities begin again in March, pending weather. No road closures are anticipated for this sewer work. Other areas of this project, including the Lakeview Dr. area, will remain unchanged as the gas pipeline owned by Vectren Energy is still in the way of the sewer pipe installations. A schedule is expected from Vectren on or around January 22, which will allow for the development of a new construction schedule. 

Background: All residents along the side streets of Oak Street who are in the direct location of the sewer project are being considered for sewer. This includes residents as far west as 800 East and as far east as 950 East. As a first step, the Wastewater Department assessed interest, asking residents in the area to complete a survey. The Town needs greater than 50% buy-in from the neighbors to run sewer down a street and all neighbors will be asked to contribute in the cost. However, residents will not be forced to connect.

North Regional Sewer

This project takes sewer to the northeastern sewer service area of town through the Holliday property. 

Estimated completion: End of February 2021

CR 400 South Reconstruction and Widening

Actual road reconstruction is likely delayed until the spring of 2021. 

Road closures anticipated: Full road closure is anticipated in Spring 2021.


Estimated completion: Spring 2021

Background: This project includes the widening, repair and resurfacing of CR 400 South to the west of CR 875 East for approximately .5 miles.

CR 500 South Reconstruction and Widening

Design is ongoing. It is anticipated that road construction will begin in spring 2021.

Road closures anticipated: Full road closure is anticipated.

Estimated completion: Spring 2021

Background: This project improves and widens CR 500 South from CR 875 East approximately .4 miles to the west. This project will reconstruct a portion of the road and widen the existing width to 24 feet. This project is funded partially from private developer funds.

Other Projects

Templin Road Bridge Reconstruction (Boone County Highway Department)

The shoulder of this bridge is currently closed. 

Background: The Templin Road bridge over Eagle Creek was inspected and an engineering firm has been hired by the Boone County Highway Department to work on design of a complete bridge replacement. The shoulder is currently closed and will remain closed until the full bridge replacement/reconstruction project begins in 2021.

Mulberry St. Pathway 

Design work is nearly complete for this multi-use pathway. Construction is expected to begin in spring 2020.

Estimated completion: December 2020

Background: This pathway will be constructed along the north side of Mulberry St. from Governors Ln. to the roundabout at the intersection of Ford Rd. and Mulberry St.

Municipal Services Building Pathway 

Design work is nearly complete. It is expected that this project will be awarded for construction prior to the end of this year, and construction will follow in the spring of 2020.

Estimated completion: December 2020

Background: A multi-use pathway will be constructed along the west side of the Municipal Services Building. This project will provide a route from the sidewalk system along Parkway Dr. south to Starkey Trail.

800 East

800 E. will be widened and resurfaced by the developers of the Pemberton and Hampshire subdivision. 


CR 300 South Corridor Project

Through a grant from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization, the Town has partnered with the Boone County Highway Department to conduct a corridor study along CR 300 S. from CR 800 E. to the Boone/Hamilton county line. The purpose of this study is to identify a preliminary scope and a potential design of future road widening and intersection improvements considering feasibility, costs, impacts to properties, environmental concerns and bridge needs. 

While there is one known bridge replacement project planned within the next four years, there are no identified intersection or road projects at this time. The information learned from this study will initially guide bridge design as these structures are maintained and replaced as needed. Future intersection or roadway capacity projects will not be undertaken until the volume of vehicles and levels of service justify the improvements.

Projects for the Future

CR 800 East and Oak Street Roundabout

The Town is completing preliminary engineering on a roundabout project at the intersection of CR 800 E. (Kissell Rd.) and Oak St. to replace an existing traffic signal. This traffic signal was installed in 2017 as a temporary measure to assist with traffic management of the intersection until a roundabout could be designed, funded and constructed. 

Property owners directly affected by the construction have been contacted, but at this time no definitive schedule has been finalized. The funding for the construction of this project has been identified, but further preliminary actions such as land-acquisition and construction is yet conditioned upon approval of spending by the Town Council. Once the funding has been approved, a tentative schedule will be made available.
