Construction Update Graphics 1200x675

Douglas Road, from east of Ironwood Road to Carmichael Drive, will be closed for the next phase of reconstruction starting Monday, March 20. The closure, which marks the beginning of Phase 3 of the Douglas Road reconstruction, will continue through summer.

The thoroughfare reopened to east-west traffic from Twyckenham Drive through the Ironwood Road intersection last fall, marking the first time Douglas Road had been open from Twyckenham to Indiana 23 since road construction for Phases 1 and 2 began last spring. 

When complete, Douglas Road will be four lanes from the toll road entrance/exit to the west through the Indiana 23 intersection and beyond. Ample turning lanes will be added at the Douglas and Indiana 23 intersection, which experiences significant congestion during peak traffic times.

The Indiana Department of Transportation is supervising construction.
