Red Line Construction Advances: Meridian Street Lane Shifting Begins at 34th Street

INDIANAPOLIS – On or after Monday, November 5, traffic lane shifts will be necessary on Meridian Street from 34th to 18th.

Lane shifts are necessary as construction crews begin work to install Red Line station foundations. No further reduction in travel lanes will occur. Drivers should heed construction signs to divert to shifted travel lanes.

For the safety of pedestrians and motorists, parking and some left-hand turns will also be restricted.

Construction crews are relocating utilities, improving drainage, pavement, sidewalks, curbs, pedestrian crossings, and ADA ramps.

Information about impacts to traffic, pedestrians, and bus riders can be found at www.IndyGoRed.com and by calling 317-635-3344.

The Red Line is the first rapid transit project in Indianapolis and will deliver 13 miles of reliable 10-minute transit service from Broad Ripple to the University of Indianapolis.
