Beginning Monday, March 28, Citizens Energy Group (CEG) will begin relocating water and natural gas mains in preparation for a major storm sewer project along Broad Ripple Avenue that will commence in the in June.
Rolling weekday lane restrictions will apply to portions of Broad Ripple Ave., Carrollton Ave., and Winthrop Ave. for the next four months. While local access will remain, parking in the work area will be restricted. CEG reports that construction will require some service interruptions and that affected properties will be notified by door tag at least 24 hours in advance of any outage.
According to the Broad Ripple Village Association, once utility relocation is finished, Broad Ripple Avenue from College Ave. to Winthrop Ave. will be completely closed for approximately 135 days. Construction will be phased one block at a time. Existing sidewalks will remain open for pedestrians during storm sewer construction but they will have to move to the street when during sidewalk reconstruction.
The portion of project from Broad Ripple Avenue from Winthrop east to Primrose will happen once the first phase is completed. Traffic is expected to have full access to roadway during construction which is expected to last from Summer 2022 through Spring 2023.
