Indiana Avenue Improvement Project

Indiana Avenue Improvement Project
Location: State Street to Marr Road
Indiana Avenue is an urban collector street and is a main artery serving Columbus East High School.  The existing street is bordered by random parking areas for individual homes.  Sidewalks exist in some areas but they are not continuous.  The new street will provide one lane in each direction, in addition to bicycle lanes and parking lanes.  Sidewalks will be constructed along both sides of the street.  Storm water filtration areas and a storm sewer system are also included.  The City of Columbus has completed the acquisition of right-of-way for the improvement of this section of street.  Construction plans have been completed.  The funding source for the project is 80% federal funds and 20% local (thoroughfare fund).  Construction is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2014.  Construction is expected to last one construction season.
