INDIANAPOLIS — IndyGo is preparing drivers and riders for road closures along the Red Line on the north side of Indianapolis.
Crews will be working on the Red Line stations along College Avenue, between 42nd and 52nd streets. The work will include bus bad reinforcement and pouring concrete.
Beginning on or after Friday, June 16, traffic on College Avenue will be closed from 38th Street to Kessler Boulevard for nearly two months. However, limited access to areas immediately surrounding the stations undergoing work will be available.
Vehicular traffic will be detoured around the stations using Meridian Street.
For riders on the Red Line, the Park, 42nd, 46th and 52nd streets Red Line stations on 38th Street and College Avenue will be closed until mid-July.
Work on 54th Street and Kessler Boulevard stations will start on or after Monday, July 17, and will last 21 days. North and southbound service will be temporarily shifted to local stops on Central Avenue.
According to IndyGo, the significant improvements to the Red Line will provide additional long-term stability and protect the significant investment made in the system's infrastructure.
The organization also said this is the last section of its "Red Line Enhancement" Project, predicted to cost about $5.1 million.
Work is expected to be finished by August 2023.
