Town Council heard a report on the status of capital projects at its February 14 meeting. Among the updates were:

- N. Green Street Reconstruction: Construction north of the CSX Railroad is substantially complete and is open to traffic. Final striping, pavement markings, street light power connection and sidewalk work still needs to be completed. CSX indicates that crossing signal work will be underway between May 6-12. The Town is urging CSX to complete the physical crossing construction to meet the accelerated schedule the road contractor has established for the project. This $5.7 million reconstruction project was awarded $3.27 million in FHWA Safety Improvement Program funds. It includes the addition of a 2-way left turn lane, new enclosed storm sewer improvements, rain gardens for stormwater runoff, bike lanes and railroad crossing improvements.

- Hornaday Road & CR 300N Roundabout: Calumet was awarded the contract to convert the 4-way stop to a single-lane roundabout. With a $1.83 million award in FHWA Highway Safety Improvement Program funds, the Town will be responsible for 20% of construction costs and 20% of the construction inspection fees. Utility relocation work is underway. The intersection is expected to be closed for a period of 60 days from June 1 to July 31.

- E. Northfield Drive: Construction began last September on the section of Northfield from CR 300N to CR 400N and is expected to continue through October. This project is 80% federally funded. The roundabout at Northfield and CR 300N opened late last year and construction of the roundabout at Northfield and CR 400N will take place between the end of May and end of July. Detour routes will be established to maneuver traffic around this closure and the closure at Hornaday and 300N. The work was scheduled over the summer months to minimize impacts to Brownsburg School’s bus routes.

- 56th Street & Wild Ridge Blvd. Intersection: The Hoosier Company was awarded the contract to install a new traffic signal and pedestrian crossing enhancements. Work is scheduled to start on April 22 and is expected to be completed by May 24. With $313,151 from the FHWA Highway Safety Improvement Program, the Town is responsible for 10% of construction costs and 100% of construction inspection.
