The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is gathering information about nearly three miles of U.S. 36/Rockville Road in Marion County between Raceway Road and I-465. This section of road is known locally as Rockville Road and nationally as U.S. 36.
Along this section of Rockville Road and local streets that intersect it, INDOT contractors are performing field work and collecting information about traffic volumes, crash history, physical features and utility locations.
Public outreach is ongoing to share information collected to date and to collect public input. Updates are being shared on the project website and social media channels.
Public input is an important part of the planning process. Neighboring homes, businesses and others with an interest in the project are encouraged to share feedback regarding safety, access, drainage and other issues.
The purpose of this three-mile long project is to increase safety and improve traffic operations throughout the project corridor, while replacing deteriorated infrastructure and meeting American Disability Act (ADA) standards. The improvements will address the project need based on greater-than-expected crash history, forecasted congestion and delay, deteriorating condition at the Shiloh Creek culvert, and lack of complete-and-ADA-compliant pedestrian and bicycle facilities.
As proposed, the project as designed will require approximately 0.207 acres of permanent new right-of-way, in addition to 0.366 acres of temporary right-of-way needed during construction. No relocations are anticipated as part of this project. The preferred alternative brings in new ADA-compliant pedestrian sidewalks/multi-use path and drainage improvements.
