CARMEL, IN.  Carmel drivers, get ready to see a lot of orange cones and work zones in Hamilton County throughout the rest of 2018.

Contractors have already started the first of 20 road construction projects that will go until the end of the year.

In order to prepare drivers for various restrictions and detours, the City of Carmel has announced their tentative construction schedule for 2018 hoping that residents and drivers in the affected areas will have alternate travel plans in place when the construction starts.

Drivers are encouraged to download the CarmelLink app so that they will have access to the latest road construction updates. Note that the CarmelLink app requires the use of the Waze app as well to utilize the CarmelLink app.

While the City is providing a snapshot of projects planned for 2018 they are reminding drivers that there are many variables that can affect the exact start and finish dates and that they will send notices of closures or detours closer to the beginning of each construction project.

The projects below are listed under the season in which they will begin. (See map below)
