Key Road Projects
*All projects are subject to change
Oak Street Sewer Project
Vectren has completed the relocation of the gas line that was in the way of the new sewers allowing our contractor to return to the sewer project. The new estimated completion date for the sewer project is November 26.
Sewer Extension Project
Southern Rail Trail Closure
The southern portion of the Rail Trail will be closed September 24 through November 25 for the installation of a new bridge over Starkey Avenue, to pave and widen the southern portion of the trail and for the installation of a bridge connecting to the future Overley-Worman Park. Here’s what you need to know.
- Rail Trail north of Starkey Avenue will be open.
- Nancy Burton Parking Lot will be open with temporary closures only during bridge installation.
- Starkey Park will be open and accessible via the parking lot entrance at the Sugarbush subdivision.
- Starkey Road from Ford Road to 6th Street will be open for local access only.
- Traffic will not be able to drive directly under the Starkey Road bridge.
US 421 and CR 550 (INDOT project)
INDOT has started the intersection improvement project at US 421 and CR 550 to add a traffic light at this intersection. This project could take a few months to complete. There will not be any closures but there may be lane restrictions at times with flaggers present.
Templin Road Bridge Reconstruction (Boone County Highway Department project)
The shoulder of this bridge is currently closed. 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.
CR 300 S. 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 E. and Oak St. Roundabout
The Town is completing 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. 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. The funding request will occur as part of the normal 2022 budget cycle.
- Design and land acquisition in 2021
- Utility relocation could begin in late 2021
- Road construction in 2022
- It is anticipated that this project will require a 90-day full closure of this intersection with traffic following a different route.
