Red Line Construction Traffic Impacts Virginia Avenue

INDIANAPOLIS (September 20, 2018) – Starting as early as October 8, Red Line construction crews will move to Virginia Avenue.

Pedestrians, bus riders, and drivers will notice lane closures and flaggers at future station locations: Woodlawn, Merrill, and Prospect.

This phase of construction is estimated to last through December.

Crews will be focusing on utility work, storm water improvements, road resurfacing, sidewalk and curb repairs and ADA ramps, and station foundations.

Meridian Street update:

Between 18th and 38th Street, drivers will notice traffic pattern shifts as crews begin work on Meridian Street station foundations in October. Vehicle travel will continue to be restricted to one lane in each direction. The travel lane restrictions also reduce parking and left turns in some portions of the construction area.

Information regarding the Red Line BRT project, including construction restrictions for traffic, pedestrians, and bus riders can be found at www.IndyGoRed.com and by calling 317-635-3344.
