Public meeting Tuesday for U.S. 36 added travel lanes project in Avon
AVON – A public informational meeting will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 14 for the proposed U.S. 36 added travel lanes project in Avon, the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) has announced.
The meeting will be held at the Avon Town Hall in the Council Chambers located at 6570 E. U.S. 36, Avon. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. will the presentation to begin at 6.
The meeting will inform the community of the project scope and schedule, describe preliminary design plans and solicit input and comments from the community. An open house with a question-and-answer session will be offered before and after the presentation.
The proposed alternative involves an added travel lane beginning just west of Avon Avenue (Old S.R. 267) to just west of Ronald Reagan Parkway. The proposed improvements will involve milling, resurfacing and widening of the existing roadway to provide three through travel lanes in both the eastbound and westbound directions on U.S. 36.
A single left turn lane would be provided in both the eastbound and westbound direction at each signalized intersection. Right turn lanes would be provided, as required.
The existing traffic signals may require modification or replacement.
The existing horizontal alignment of U.S. 36 will remain unchanged. The profile grade will match the existing profile grade.
