  • Culvert repair causes temporary lane closure of Little Chicago Road
    2/23/2018 The City of Noblesville has temporarily closed a portion of the southbound lane of Little Chicago Road between Ind. 38 and Buttonwood Drive to make an emergency repair to the roadway.
    An inspection from the Noblesville Street and Engineering departments determined that the culvert under the southbound lane was washed out due to recent rainy weather.
    Noblesville Street Department crews are currently onsite to fix the portion of the road. A temporary patch will be constructed now and will be replaced permanently once asphalt plants are back in service in April/May.
    The northbound lane through that portion of Little Chicago Road has signalers directing motorists. The work is expected to be completed today and the city hopes to have the road reopened as soon as possible.

  • Candidate claims sign ordinance hampers chances
    2/22/2018 Hamilton County Commissioners have hamstringed a county council candidate by prohibiting political signs to be placed on road and street right of ways.
    Rick Sharp, Carmel, a candidate for Hamilton County Council District 4, makes the claim in a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Superior Court.
    Sharp maintains an ordinance prohibiting signs in right of ways, adopted Feb. 12, was passed to benefit candidates, who have greater name recognition and are favored by the county commissioners.
    “I believe it was done in an attempt to hold down lesser financed candidates in favor of other candidates who are better financed, and favored by the commissioners,” Sharp said.
    The rule attaches a $500 fine for placing signs along county road right of ways. It is not limited to political signs.
    “For him to claim that is laughable,” said Hamilton County Commissioner Mark Heirbrandt. “This was a public safety issue because signs have become a distraction for drivers.”
