126th Street and Southeastern Parkway Intersection
DES NOS. 1901669
HAMILTON COUNTY, INDIANA
The City of Fishers, with funding from the FHWA and administrative oversight from the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), intends to proceed with an Intersection Improvement Project. This project is located at the intersection of 126th Street and Southeastern Parkway in Fishers, Hamilton County, Indiana. The need for this project is evidenced by the number of vehicular accidents at the 126th Street and Southeastern Parkway intersection, as well as the existing level of service (LOS) of E (unacceptable) for the eastbound approach of the intersection. LOS is a scale (A through F) which classifies operating conditions of roads. In general, the operating conditions of intersections are considered acceptable if found to operate as LOS D or better. Additionally, the need for this project is evidenced by the lack of pedestrian connectivity between the Thorpe Creek housing addition, the Avalon of Fishers housing addition, Thorpe Creek Elementary School, St. John Vianney Catholic Church, and Heartland Church. The purpose of the project is to reduce vehicle conflict points that result in serious injuries and damage at the 126th Street and Southeastern Parkway intersection, improve the LOS of the intersection to LOS D or better, and provide pedestrian connectivity between the housing additions and the institutional facilities located along 126th Street and Southeastern Parkway in the vicinity of the project area. The current preferred alternative consists of a conversion of the stop-controlled intersection to a roundabout intersection. The project would add a multi-lane roundabout, rehabilitate, or reconstruct the pavement, and add sidewalks, a multi-use path, curb and gutter, and storm sewers. Additionally, a stormwater detention pond will be constructed in the southwest quadrant of the intersection of 126th Street and Southeastern Parkway
