Carroll Road Project

Carroll Road from Lima Road to Coral Springs Drive/Shearwater Run

Project Description

This project is on Carroll Road beginning at approximately 250 feet east of Bethel Road to Millstone Drive (west section #1801748) and Lima Road/SR 3 to Coral Springs Drive/Shearwater Run (east section #180749). The section of roadway in between (Millstone Drive to Lima Road/SR 3) is in Allen County's jurisdiction, thus not part of this road reconstruction project.

The western section (#180748) is a roadway reconstruction that includes curb and gutter on both sides with underground storm sewer system to address drainage on the roadway. An 8 foot wide trail on both sides of the roadway is proposed which will connect with the existing Bethel Rd Trail along the Carroll High School property going south and the existing sidewalks that continue west along Carroll Road. Within this section of the project additional storm sewer work may be needed to connect to the subdivision (Troutwood Drive in Carroll Creek) north of the roadway.

The eastern section of this project (#1801749) is a roadway reconstruction that includes curb and gutter on both sides with underground storm sewer system to address drainage on the roadway. This section will have a 10 foot wide trail on the north side of the roadway which will connect to the existing trail that continues east along Carroll Road. The south side of the east section will have a sidewalk to connect to existing sidewalks in Brooks Crossing subdivision (at Coral Springs Drive). In addition to the trails and sidewalks, curb ramps will be installed at all intersections.

Estimated Construction Cost: $2.9 million

Project Share: INDOT 80 %; Huntertown 20%

The Town approved a design for this project at its Public Meeting on September 8, 2020. That design is linked here: Huntertown Approved Design - Sept 2020. Since, INDOT has shared concerns with the project because of safety reasons and has proposed two alternative designs INDOT Proposed Designs. The town has countered with its own additional alternative plan Huntertown Alternative Design. The two sides continue to negotiate a workable design that meets the desires of both parties.
