The Department of Public Works (DPW) will begin a drainage improvement project on the Monon Trail on Monday, April 22. Work will begin on the Monon at 75th Street to approximately 2,600 feet north of the 75th Street intersection. The trail is expected to be closed for no longer than two weeks, weather dependant.

During this closure, bike traffic will be restricted from 86th Street to 75th Street and should use the posted detour route which will be 91st Street to Washington Boulevard, Washington Boulevard to 84th Street, 84th Street to Pennsylvania Street, Pennsylvania Street to 75th Street and 75th Street to the Monon Trail. Pedestrians will be permitted from 86th Street to the construction zone. Bike and pedestrian detour signage will be in place along the detour route.

Improvements include the correction of drainage issues along the project area and new guard rails, as well as resurfacing of 2,600 linear feet of trail. DPW, together with Indy Parks, is working to ensure the project is completed in a timely and safe manner to protect all trail users. After work on the trail is complete, crews will work along 75th Street and will be installing drainage pipe. The entire project will take approximately two months to complete.

Additional project information and construction updates will be posted on
