Central Avenue Changing to Two-Way Street This Fall
INDIANAPOLIS -- A popular downtown one-way route will change into a two-way street this year.
From Fall Creek to 10th Street, Central Avenue is currently a one-way southbound. It was a popular morning commute route to downtown Indianapolis, until construction closed the Fall Creek bridge over Central last year.
Changing the street to a two-way will improve traffic circulation and allow more people to use mass transit, according to an IndyGo news release.
The street will be resurfaced and new signals will be installed. Work will begin in mid-July and is expected to be complete by October.
IndyGo and the Indianapolis Department of Public Works are hosting public information meetings this week at the following dates and times:
Tuesday, March 20 at 6:00pm
Indianapolis Fire Department Headquarters
955 Fort Wayne Avenue, Indianapolis, IN
Wednesday, March 21 at 6:00pm

300 E. Fall Creek Parkway North Drive, Indianapolis, IN
