[ARCHIVED] Zionsville Road Update

Zionsville Road

After more than four years of planning and design, as well as a construction delay for a year due to utility conflicts, the Zionsville Road reconstruction project is substantially complete. Visitors and residents can now enjoy the new road and pathways.

Project Background

Complex reconstruction projects such as this can take up to two years to design. Once a basic, preliminary design is developed, team members approach each property owner along the project length with drawings and an estimated value of the land needing to be purchased. Team members listen to the concerns of property owners and attempt to implement alterations to the plans based on these concerns.

Ideally, the Town and property owners come to an agreement on the compensation package which may include monetary compensation or additional construction elements. The Town of Zionsville makes every reasonable attempt to negotiate monetary compensations for property needed for projects.

But even after design is complete and a construction contract is awarded, a project of this magnitude continues to evolve. It is nearly impossible to foresee all issues that arise during a project’s construction. By both the Town and the affected residents keeping an open mind and engaging in civil discourse, resolutions can typically be implemented. And while the landscape a property owner has enjoyed for many years may be forever altered, the elements of a well-construed project will introduce amenities and improvements that will be valued by future generations of home purchasers.
