136th Street and Ditch Road | Roundabout Design
CARMEL, IN—This former multi-way stop controlled intersection has been transformed to a beautifully landscaped single lane roundabout in order to safely and efficiently convey the traffic. This project was only one component of an overall infrastructure improvement plan, and as such required BLN to work very closely with and coordinate with other designers to provide the consistent feel desired by our client.
Solving the Community's Traffic Delays
This area has been experiencing rapid growth and the increasing need to improve the existing infrastructure. The original roadway consisted of a single travel lane in each direction, bordered by earthen shoulders and open ditches. This project now provides a boulevard section with concrete curb and gutter bordered by multi-use path. As a result of the roundabout installation, the area has been experiencing fluid traffic movement and reduced delays.
