INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.-Northbound traffic on Keystone Avenue will narrow to a single lane Friday night between 96th and 98th Street as workers place pipe across the roadway. Pipe installation should be complete by mid-afternoon Saturday as the $18.2 million Major Moves project at Keystone Avenue enters a new sub-phase of construction.
Phase 1B is initiating adjustments to the traffic pattern. Northbound motorists continue to have three thru lanes available-and a dedicated right turn lane at 96th Street. Southbound Keystone traffic now has a combination right turn/thru lane at 96th Street. There’s also a second thru lane and a left turn lane at the intersection.
The Indiana Department of Transportation is building a partial cloverleaf interchange at Interstate 465 and Keystone Avenue to provide a measure of free-flow traffic and to relieve congestion. One lane in each direction is being added on Keystone Avenue from just south of 96th Street to 98th Street to further improve mobility. Plans also call for additional turn lanes.
Reith Riley is the state’s prime contractor. Beaty Construction, Gradex, HIS Constructors and Harmon Steel are onsite as subcontractors. The contract completion date is October 15, 2011.
