Red Line construction work comes to Virginia Avenue

Here’s the latest construction update from IndyGo, issued on Monday, Nov. 26:



Starting Nov. 15, Red Line construction crews will move to Virginia Avenue to begin preparations for station foundation work. On or after Monday, Nov. 26, drivers should expect lane shifts as full station work is underway. No lane restrictions or closures are anticipated on Virginia Avenue, and this phase is estimated to last through December.



On or after Monday Nov. 12, traffic lane restrictions will be necessary on the west side of Capitol Avenue from 18th to Washington Street through Dec. 31. Two southbound travel lanes will remain open. Parking will be restricted on both sides of Capitol during west side construction work, and the bike lane will be closed. All driveways, entrances, and parking lots will be accessible on both the east and west sides of Capitol.



Water and gas utility relocations on College Avenue will begin in November, in advance of Red Line construction. Crews will be relocating sections of water main and/or fire hydrants at several intersections over the next several months, with gas main relocations to follow.



On or after Monday Nov. 5, between 18th and 38th Street, drivers will notice traffic pattern shifts as crews begin work on Meridian Street station foundations. Vehicle travel will continue to be restricted to one lane in each direction. The travel lane restrictions also reduce parking and left turns in some portions of the construction area.
