Project : US 31 Hamilton County Reconstruction

Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) -- Hamilton County, Indiana

CHA provided program management and lead design services for the $358 million reconstruction and upgrade of 12 miles of arterial boulevard to freeway standards. We conducted an extensive public outreach effort with local agencies, a community leader focus committee, and the general public.

Located on the north side of Indianapolis, the project required an innovative design to reduce the overall footprint of the new roadway. The project involved the preparation of an environmental impact statement; review and installation of roundabout intersections (21 roundabouts total); roadway design and earthwork calculations for eight new grade separated interchanges; and the design of all traffic components, including signs, signals, lighting, and ITS.
