Zionsville Road Bridge
Work has begun on a project to greatly improve pedestrian mobility along South Main Street, south of the downtown business district. The bridge and approaches will be modified to eliminate the center turn lane, modify the remaining two travel lanes and provide a protected, separated 10’ multi-use pathway along each side of the road. This will provide pedestrian access on each side of Main Street.
This project involves the widening of Zionsville Road, which will go from two to three lanes when a center turn lane is added between Technology Center Drive and 106th Street. The project also includes adding a bike path on the west side of the road. To minimize cost and project length, the road will be closed during the summer for construction.
The reconstruction project – which involves the widening of a one-mile section of Zionsville Road and adding a multi-use pathway along each side of the road – will start in the summer of 2019.
With increased development and growth coming to the west side of Zionsville, design has begun on a new roadway segment that will connect the intersection of 850 East/Cooper Road with CR 875 East to the north, also known as the North-South Connector. The design includes a roundabout at the intersection of 850 East/Cooper Road and Oak Street as well as a roundabout at the intersection of CR 875 East and Whitestown Road. The project is also expected to include a 10-foot multi-use path.
Engineering work will continue through 2017, with land acquisition planned for 2018 and construction beginning in 2019. This project is included in the Town of Zionsville's 1983 Transportation Plan.
