City of Greenwood announces $4 million in road construction projects

GREENWOOD, Ind. — Greenwood Mayor Mark W. Myers Friday released a list of $4 million in planned road construction projects for the summer of 2017 to upgrade and enhance road quality in Greenwood.   The amount of road work is increased from previous years due to a local income tax bond issued by the city earlier in the year for road improvements. In total, five miles of roads will either be resurfaced or reconstructed.

The increased road improvements are aimed at addressing road maintenance issues and funding has been directed to those streets where needs are highest.

“We are committed to maintaining and improving road quality in Greenwood,” said Myers. “We must manage our transportation resources wisely and invest in those areas most in need of improvement in order to support existing traffic and continued growth.”

Highlights of the projects, many of which will commence this month, include:

Fog Sealing is a spray-on treatment that delays the aging process by replenishing the molecular components and re-constituting the asphalt.  Residents that live on these streets will receive door-flyers and notifications.

Greenwood also recently awarded an $800,000 road project that will make significant improvements to the intersection of Stop 18 Road and U.S. 31.  A new turn lane will be added on Stop 18 and a large roadside swale will be improved.  The improvements will produce a safer intersection with better traffic flow while increasing sidewalk connectivity for pedestrians.

Two other improvements included the city’s summer road work will include a new passing blister on Smith Valley Road at the entry to Brandywine subdivision and the resurfacing and striping of the public parking lot located on Pearl Street in Old Town.

No road closures are planned for these projects, but there may be occasional lane restrictions. The city indicated its commitment to providing clear and frequent updates so commuters can adjust travel plans.

Construction activities are also progressing for the new roundabout at Smith Valley and Yorktown Roads.  In recent weeks construction crews have installed concrete curbs, sidewalk, and portions of the asphalt pavement.

“The project has benefited from favorable weather conditions over the past five weeks.  The contractor is currently on-track to complete construction by July 28 as scheduled,” said Daniel Johnston, a city engineer.

The road construction projects are expected to begin in the next week or two.  Most of the projects will be completed by the fall.
