Utility work, road restrictions planned for Gray Road

Gray Road utility work


CARMEL, IN –Indianapolis Power & Light, along with Duke Energy are gearing up for some utility work on Gray Road that will result in some temporary road restrictions and closures, although local access for residents in the area will be maintained at all times.


Duke is seeking approval from the Carmel Board of Public Works (BPW) to close sections of Gray Road between 96th and 116th Streets while they remove a transmission line from the poles. IPL previously received this approval for its work. Upon Duke’s approval, the following schedule would be put into place:


  • AREA 1- Monday, January 28, work begins with lane restrictions for southbound Gray Road between 96th and Grand Haven Lane. Traffic will be maintained in both directions during work in this area and is expected to take 8 days. Lane restrictions can be approved by the city engineer, and have been approved in this case.


  • AREA 2- On or after February 6, pending BPW approval, closures begin with full closure of southbound Gray Road between 106th and Grand Haven Lane.  Work in this area is expected to last 4 days and northbound traffic will be maintained during this time. The road will reopen, after working hours, in the evening (expect delays).


  • AREA 3- A full closure of Gray Road between the substation at 11405 Gray Road and 106th Street will also take place. Work in this area is expected to last 5 days. Access to Sycamore Farm, Wood Creek and Kingswood subdivisions will be maintained via the Wood Creek Drive entrance off of East 116th Street. The road will reopen, after working hours, in the evening (expect delays). This is a phase of the project that will require BPW approval.

The BPW meets on February 6 to consider these proposed road closures.

This is not a city of Carmel city project, but rather a private utilities project. Utilities have legislative authority to work in public right of way. The City of Carmel works hard to keep citizens informed of these disruptions, and ensure the construction schedule minimizes disruption to the motoring public and neighborhoods.

Anyone with additional questions can contact Joshua Kirsh, Engineering Administrator for the City of Carmel or 317-571-2441.
