Fall construction season is in full swing around Fishers, and this month the City of Fishers plans to debut several long-awaited projects around the city.
“Many of these projects have been in the works for years, so I’m incredibly excited to see the culmination of our work,” said City of Fishers’ Director of Engineering, Jason Taylor. “These improvements will enhance both the motorist and pedestrian experience around our community, in a time where it’s more important than ever that we help our residents get to where they’re going quickly and efficiently, and give them new opportunities to explore our community by foot.”
Fall projects include:
Nickel Plate TrailThe first paved portion of the Nickel Plate Trail is set be completed later this month. Paving has been completed between 106th Street and 126th Street, and grading, paving, and crossing improvements are in progress between 126th Street and 131st Street. The paved trail extending between 106th Street and 131st Street is set to open before Thanksgiving. Paving between 96th Street and 106th Street and 131st and 146th Street will be completed when funding becomes available.

The second project, which began this summer, consists of major resurfacing and construction of grass medians on 96th Street, east of I-69.
