Fishers’ Department of Public Works, Water Quality Division is constantly working to ensure that the city’s infrastructure is comfortably able to handle current and future flows. In an effort to provide that level of service for residents now, and into the future, the 106th Street Infrastructure Improvement Project will install a new wastewater force main along 106th Street from the I-69 interstate exchange, west to Eller Road, then south along Eller Road to the Wastewater Treatment Plant. During this time, road infrastructure improvements will also be made along 106th Street. 106th Street will be widened and repaved from just west of the Nickel Plate Railroad tracks to Eller Road. The 106th Street interchange at I-69 will remain open throughout the project timeline with periodic road closures occurring west of the interchange.
The closure, slated to begin in December, and to be phased* over an estimated 400 day construction period, will allow for the new sewer line to be placed underground. During this time, various improvements will also be made along 106th Street. 106th Street will be widened and repaved from just west of the Hoosier Heritage Port Authority Railroad tracks to Eller Road. In hopes of minimizing disruption caused by the closure, Fishers DPW is working closely with Fishers Parks & Recreation to ensure that access to the Historic Ambassador House & Heritage Gardens remains open. Signage and detour routes will be posted along the project site, and access will be available through an entrance through Eller Trail Subdivision off of Eller Road. North – South traffic along Crosspoint Blvd/Lantern Road, Hague Road and Allisonville Road will remain open. Access to properties whose drives are off 106th Street or Eller Road will remain available. Detour route pictured below.
Updates about the 106th Street closure will be shared in an ongoing fashion as the project progresses. The weekly construction update and the @DriveFishers Twitter account will provide weekly details about the project through its duration.
