Noblesville officials and construction crew members from United Construction Services and Butler, Fairman & Seufert, Inc. gathered on Greenfield Avenue for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the completion of the new roundabout at Howe Road. Striping of the road was completed today and reopened to traffic at 5 p.m.

The newly-constructed project was selected by the Noblesville Engineering Department due to concerns with vehicle delays and safety. In order to create a safer and more efficient intersection, a roundabout was chosen.

“This roundabout provides a more efficient connection with Howe Road and 146th Street and adds a traffic calming effect on Greenfield Avenue,” said Assistant City Engineer Jim Hellmann.

INDOT selected United Construction Services to construct the roundabout, which cost $847,117.10. The project was funded through a federal grant with the City of Noblesville’s match of 20 percent ($169,423.42).

This is the third consecutive year the city has made improvements to Greenfield Avenue. Last year, Greenfield Avenue from State Road 37 to Boden Road was resurfaced using a Community Crossing Grant, which was funded evenly by the city and state. In 2017, the city resurfaced Greenfield Avenue west of 16th Street and constructed the roundabout at 10th Street.
