Despite cold temperatures and the hustle and bustle of the holidays, the city of Carmel hosted a Grand Opening Ceremony on December 15th as an official acknowledgement of the newly improved Spring Mill Road between 111th Street and Main Street in the city of Carmel.

The $8.6 million project included the construction of a boulevard section with a sidewalk and multi-use path for 1.81 miles of Spring Mill Road in conjunction with a roundabout at 111th Street in Carmel. Beginning at the south approach of a proposed roundabout at 111th Street, the project was extended north to the existing roundabout at Main Street. No modifications  were made to the 116th Street, Dorset Boulevard, and Main Street roundabouts.

A multi-use path was extended south from the new roundabout at 111th Street to the existing roundabout at 106th Street along the east side of Spring Mill Road.

Finally, modifications to separate vehicular and pedestrian trac were made to Hamilton County Bridges No. 31 and 32 over Williams Creek.

Project team members included United Consulting; Rieth-Riley Construction Co., Inc.; Roudebush Grading, Inc.; Morphey Construction; and Indiana Sign & Barricade.
