Road Construction: Keystone Ave. Bridge Over 86th St.

The Indianapolis Department of Public Works (DPW) is planning a bridge maintenance project for Keystone Avenue over 86th Street. The project includes improvements to the existing north- and south-bound bridges and approaches.

The existing bridge super and substructure will remain in place. The bridge deck will be removed and replaced (and widened). DPW indicated Keystone Avenue will remain open, with lane restrictions throughout the project.

Estimated Start Date: April 14th, 2015
Estimated Completion Date: October 2015

New bridge railings will be installed, of similar style as existing. No work on the 86th St. underpass is included in the project. DPW staff have indicated that the existing structure does not preclude future 86th St. pedestrian access that may be developed by other projects.
