276th Street Reconstruction Phase I & Phase II
Hamilton County, IN
Paving the way for a growing community
Challenge: The flow of traffic and sustainability of 276th Street became a great concern for this expanding area of Hamilton County. With its narrow lanes, it was unsafe for large vehicular traffic or two vehicles traveling at the same time. Large truck traffic was expected to increase as businesses began expanding in the area. This became concerning for travelers as pavement continued to deteriorate as well as the lack of efficient connectivity between SR 19 and US 31 across northern Hamilton County.
Solution: The project involved about four miles of reconstructed road, approximately two miles of new road, and a new roundabout to accommodate the semi traffic, large farm equipment, and local vehicles traveling along the corridor. RQAW developed strategic maintenance of traffic (MOT) to provide travelers with safer and more suitable road conditions by widening the road, improving the shoulders, and creating a connection from US 31 to SR 19.
