Indianapolis road construction projects happening in April 2022
It’s the season for ceremonial shovels.
With the weather breaking, Indianapolis city officials have broken ground on several high-profile projects in March, including the Purple Line construction, Monon Trail widening, Broad Ripple Avenue improvements and West Morris Street reconstruction.
Not all of these will require complete road closures — yet.
But they come in addition to several long-term projects still chugging along, such as the North Split interchange reconstruction downtown and the revamping of brick-covered Market Street near Monument Circle.
Here are the significant road closures and detours to expect in April as part of these and other projects:
