WORK TO REPLACE FALL CREEK ROAD CULVERT BEGINS SEPTEMBER 12, 2019

The Indianapolis Department of Public Works (DPW) will close Fall Creek Road between 71st and 79th Streets on Thursday, September 12, to begin replacement of the Fall Creek culvert near 9540 Fall Creek Rd.

Southeast-bound motorists will use a posted detour of Fall Creek Road, Hague Road and 82nd Street, while northeast-bound motorists will use 82nd Street, Hague Road and Fall Creek Road. Local traffic will be permitted on Fall Creek Road between 71st and 79th Street during the closure except for the active construction site, located about a half-mile north of the 71st Street and Fall Creek intersection (see below).

At more than $325,000, construction will replace the bridge rail and culvert, which has experienced significant concrete deterioration, including cracks and erosion. Weather permitting, the project is anticipated to wrap up in mid-October. For more information on this or other DPW construction projects, visit indy.gov/DPW.
