The Indiana Department of Transportation announces a public informational meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 14 for the proposed U.S. 36 added travel lanes project in Avon.
The meeting will be held at the Avon Town Hall in the Council Chambers located at 6570 E. U.S. 36, Avon. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. will the presentation to begin at 6:00 p.m.
The meeting will inform the community of the project scope and schedule, describe preliminary design plans and solicit input and comments from the community. An open house with a question and answer session will be offered before and after the presentation. The meeting will also establish the Community Advisory Committee for the project which will identify willing participants to represent their effected community through the project development process.
The proposed recommended alternative involves an added travel lane project beginning just west of Avon Ave. (Old S.R. 267) to just west of Ronald Reagan Parkway. The proposed improvements will involve milling, resurfacing, and widening of the existing roadway to provide three through travel lanes in both the eastbound and westbound directions on U.S. 36. A single left turn lane would be provided in both the eastbound and westbound direction at each signalized intersection. Right turn lanes would be provided, as required.
A combination of storm sewer, curb turnouts with ditches and drive pipe culverts are proposed to handle drainage along the corridor. The existing traffic signals may require modification or replacement.
The existing horizontal alignment of US 36 will remain unchanged. The profile grade will match the existing profile grade.
INDOT is also providing a virtual opportunity to watch the public information meeting live online. The presentation will be conducted via Microsoft Teams, an online meeting platform. If you would like to attend virtually, please click the following link to follow along with the project team:
