3rd Avenue SW and 4th Avenue SW Realignment
Carmel, IN – On or after October 23rd, 4th Avenue SW will be closed from Main Street to 2nd Street SW until the end of this construction season.  This “hyperfix” construction project requires a closure in order to complete the project in a timely manner. 
The proposed project will re-align 3rd Avenue SW such that it continues through to Main Street at the existing 4th Avenue SW intersection. The project will complete a north-south corridor connecting Carmel Drive and Main Street. The road improvements will reconstruct the existing roadway to include two lanes of travel, on-street parking on the east side of 4th Avenue SW (north of 2nd Street SW), a sidewalk, curbing and storm water drainage.
The project will be constructed in two phases. The first phase will be from 2nd Street SW to Main Street, including the reconstruction of the intersection of 2nd Street SW and 4th Avenue SW. Phase One is expected to start on or after October 23rd and will continue for the remainder of the construction season. Phase Two (from 2nd Street SW to Industrial Drive) will be constructed in the spring and will include the realignment portion of the project.
While this portion of the project will not be completed before winter, asphalt will be laid so vehicles can travel on roadway through winter.  This portion and phase II will be completed in the spring.
