The closure of Zionsville Road is scheduled to begin on April 1, 2019. This reconstruction project involves the widening of a one-mile section of Zionsville Road, converting it from its current two-lane configuration to three lanes by widening the existing lanes and adding a center turn lane between Technology Center Drive and 106th Street.
This project also includes adding a 10’ multi-use pathway the entire length of the project on the west side of the road as well as a 10’ multi-use pathway on the east side of the road from Inglenook and Zionsville Cemetery north to 106th Street.
To minimize cost and project duration, the road will be closed to through-traffic beginning April 1 and is anticipated to continue through November. Local access for residents to and from homes and businesses will be from the north end of the project. No traffic will be permitted south of the Vonterra subdivision entrance.
Signal timing changes have been implemented to the signal at the intersection of Oak Street and Ford Road (implemented last fall due to the new crosswalks and in anticipation of increased volume on Ford Road) and recently at the intersection of 96th Street and Zionsville Road. The Zionsville Street & Stormwater Department will continue to monitor all local traffic signals and will make adjustments when significantly warranted, however, traffic delays are expected at times.
Changes and updates will be posted on the Town of Zionsville website when new information is available.
