ACEC Indiana Honor Award Recipient

Congratulations to INDOT, the city of Fishers, and Hamilton County on another successful project!

The New Interchange at I-69 and 106th Street is one of the first oval interchanges built in the United States and the only one built over an interstate. In addition, ACEC Indiana just announced the project has been selected as the recipient of an Honor Award in the Engineering Excellence Awards 2018 competition.

The new interchange provides unique access into the city of Fishers while alleviating traffic congestion and encouraging economic development in the area.

United Consulting designed the new interchange and managed the project delivery including the professional services for topographic survey, roundabout operations, utility coordination, land acquisition management, and road, bridge, retaining wall, and hydraulic design.

Safe Pedestrian Access along Churchman Avenue

The Churchman Avenue Sidewalk Project in the city of Beech Grove was delivered one year ahead of schedule thanks to the early availability of funds by the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO). The new sidewalk provides safe pedestrian access to Churchman Avenue between Emerson Avenue and Arlington Avenue in Beech Grove, connecting nearly one mile of homes, businesses, schools, churches, and assisted living facilities.  Handrails and safety fence along the steeper drop-offs adjacent to the sidewalk were also constructed.  Prior to the project, pedestrians along Churchman Avenue were forced to share the street alongside busy vehicular traffic without any safety provisions for walkers.

In addition to the much-needed safety features for pedestrians, the project also improved drainage in the area through new curb and gutter, storm water infrastructure, extended drainage culverts, rebuilt driveways, and street approaches.

The project was partially subsidized using Transportation Alternative Program (TAP) funding administered through the Indianapolis MPO along with oversight from the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT).
