Emerson Avenue Widening & Rehabilitation

City of Indianapolis Department of Public Works (DPW)

Project Description:  The project extends from Company Drive to Shelbyville Road in Marion County (1.64 miles).  It included the widening of the existing roadway to a five-lane road with curb and gutter, enclosed drainage, and pedestrian facilities.  The project also included replacement of an existing three-span bridge structure over Little Buck Creek.

The rehabilitation included shifting the existing centerline to reduce right-of-way acquisition and caused special consideration to be given to the treatment of the roadway crown and resurfacing.  Right-of-way limits were set on a parcel-by-parcel basis to minimize the right-of-way costs and acquisitions.

Approximate Project Cost:  $7,218,000

Breadth of Services Provided: Survey, Environmental Services, Design Study Report, Roadway Design, Bridge Design,  and Construction Inspection
