2019 project update from Street & Stormwater and Wastewater Departments

Below are updates from the Town of Zionsville Street & Stormwater Department and the Wastewater Department regarding 2019 projects.

North-South Connector

This project, currently still in design but anticipated for a 2019 start of construction, will add a new roadway link from Oak Street at Cooper Road north to CR 875 East at Whitestown Road. This project will include a variable width multi-use pathway its entire length. The project also includes a new, multi-lane roundabout at the intersection of Oak Street and Cooper Road, as well as a single-lane roundabout at the intersection of Whitestown Road and CR 875 East.

Zionsville Road

Scheduled to begin construction on April 1, this project will widen Zionsville Road from two to three lanes between 106th Street and Technology Center Drive. In addition to road widening, a 10’ multi-use path will be added on the west side of Zionsville Road the entire length of the project and will link the pathways and sidewalks in the 106th Street area to the sidewalks in the 96th Street area. Additionally, a 10’ multi-use pathway will be added along the east side of Zionsville Road from the Inglenook and Zionsville Cemetery area north to the existing pathway and sidewalk network at 106th Street. This will allow residents in the Vonterra, Inglenook and Hoosier Village subdivisions to walk or bike to downtown, as well as allow greater non-vehicular access to the cemetery.

Main Street Bridge Improvements

Nearly complete, this project provides a 10’ multi-use path on each side of the Main Street bridge over Eagle Creek, along with a scenic overlook bump-out on each side. Decorative flower planters are planned in the spring to increase the aesthetics. This project accomplishes a few things, primarily increasing safety and attractiveness of walking or biking from the 106th Street area into town and vice-versa. This project has also opened up the view of Eagle Creek through the use of decorative pedestrian railings and open-style crash railings.

Oak Street Storm Sewer Project

A large new storm sewer will be installed along the south side of Oak Street from Irongate Drive to Ford Road. This project will eliminate or greatly reduce instances of localized flooding. Historically during heavy rains, Oak Street is covered by water and the Irongate subdivision floods and the road must be closed.

Downtown Parking Lot Resurfacing

The parking lot along Pine Street that is home to the annual Farmers Market, commonly referred to as “the Friendly Parking Lot,” will be resurfaced in 2019 to bring a fresh look to this downtown area.

Other Projects in Development

Through a combination of private (developer) funding and public funding, the following roads are planned for reconstruction and widening in the next two years:

CR 800 East from approximately the Pemberton subdivision entrance up to CR 400 South

CR 400 South from CR 800 East to CR 875 East

CR 500 South (Whitestown Road) from CR 800 East to CR 875 East

A new pathway segment is planned for construction in 2019 from Governor’s Lane to Ford Road on the north side of Mulberry Street.

A new pathway segment is planned for construction in 2019 along the Municipal Services Building connecting the sidewalk system along Parkway Drive with the multi-use trail referred to as “Starkey Trail.”

Wastewater Department – Sewer Expansion Projects

Four Wastewater Department sewer projects, all part of the Sewer Master Plan, have been identified to start in 2019. The projects include: Oak Street Sewer with lift station, gravity sewer and force main; Phase One Gravity Sewer on CR 875 East; Phase Two Gravity Sewer on CR 875 East with lift station and force main; and North Regional Sewer with gravity sewer, lift station and force main. Construction will likely begin by the end of summer.
