CARMEL - New construction projects, road closures and traffic restrictions are on tap within the next week as the City of Carmel continues to invest in its infrastructure. Motorists should pay close attention to the orange barrels, special signage and detour routes posted for these projects.

• 136th and Gray - This intersection will be closed for 45 days beginning today or tomorrow for the construction of a new roundabout. The closure will take place as soon as the current culvert replacement project to the north at 146th and Gray is completed.

• 126th and Gray - This new roundabout project has been delayed by utility work and will remain open until further notice.

• 126th and Range Line - Work will begin on or after Monday on construction of a new roundabout to replace the current signalized intersection. During Phase I, the intersection will remain open to one lane of northbound and one lane of southbound traffic on Range Line Road. The traffic pattern on 126th Street will remain the same, westbound only from Keystone Parkway. Phase II is expected to begin May 30 and will involve a complete closure of the intersection for about 45 days. Plans call for all of 126th Street from Keystone to Range Line, and the new roundabout intersection, to be open by mid-June, weather permitting.
