The city of Noblesville’s Engineering Dept. has been notified its Ind. 32/38 and Union Chapel Road Roundabout Project has been selected as the winner of a 2011 Quality Transportation Award by the Indiana Division of the Federal Highway Administration. This project was named the winner in the category Major New/Reconstruction in an Urban Community.
“Our Engineering Dept. is dedicated to providing the most efficient, cost-effective roadways for our city,” said Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear. “I am proud of their hard work and the excellent collaboration we had with the project’s partners. It is rewarding to know the Federal Highway Administration recognizes the value of the Union Chapel Road project with this award.”
Union Chapel Road was a five-phase project completed in November. The road was extended from 166th Street to Ind. 32, and was constructed as a four-lane roadway with multiuse trails. To aid in smoother flow of traffic, the Union Chapel Road extension was constructed as a roundabout corridor with roundabouts at 166th Street, Town & Country Boulevard, Pleasant Street, Promise Road and Ind. 32. Union Chapel Road now serves as an additional north/south corridor and helps to alleviate traffic on Ind. 37.
The award will be presented during a ceremony at Purdue University today.
