The city is working on the estimated $115 million project with Hamilton County, which is funding its portion for a new bridge over the White River during the first phase that is expected to open to traffic by the end of 2024. Phase 2 of Reimagine Pleasant Street will involve work from 10th Street to Ind. 37, according to the city.
Officials say the project, which is expected to be completed by the fall of 2025, will help relieve traffic congestion off Ind. 32 by connecting Hague Road at Ind. 32 to Ind. 37 with an additional bridge over the White River. Phases 2 and 3 are expected to begin later this year.
The city was recently awarded $5,475,700 for the third phase of the Pleasant Street project from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization that will involve work from River Road to Hague Road. Officials also received $494,000 from the IMPO that will be used for a 12-foot-wide extension of the Midland Trace Trail that will be constructed as part of the Pleasant Street project.
Mayor Chris Jensen previously said that when the entire project is completed, it will allow for better access to downtown Noblesville and provide the public with easier access from the east to the west part of the city. For more, visit reimaginepleasantst.com.
