FISHERS, IND. – Today the City of Fishers announced the partial closure of 116th Street between Exit Five Parkway/IKEA Way and Cumberland Road. The partial closure will be in effect from March 30 at 9 p.m. to April 10 at 5 a.m, coinciding with Hamilton Southeastern School District’s Spring Break.
The detour and partial closure will allow crews from Marathon Pipeline to remove casing from their existing pipeline that runs under the eastbound lanes of 116th Street. Fishers Departments of Engineering and Public Works plans to make additional repairs and improvements to 116th Street during the partial closure.
The lanes and roads affected by the detour and partial closure include:
Westbound 116th Street between Exit Five Parkway/IKEA Way and Cumberland Road will be closed. Traffic will be detoured north on Cumberland Road to Exit Five Parkway/121st Street and south on Exit Five Parkway to 116th Street.
Eastbound 116th Street will be directed to drive in the westbound lanes of 116th Street from Exit Five Parkway/IKEA Way to the signal just west of Cumberland Road at Kroger. Traffic will then switch back to the eastbound lanes.
Southbound Cumberland Road will be closed from 126th Street to 121st Street.
Westbound 121st Street will be directed to go north on Cumberland Road to 126th Street and then continue west on 126th Street.
Fishers Department of Engineering will be monitoring signal timings to assist with traffic flow. Westbound drivers are encouraged to detour south on Cumberland Road from 116th Street to 106th Street to access I-69 and other West-side destinations.
Businesses along Exit Five Parkway and 121st Street with regular truck deliveries should consider adjusting delivery times to before or after morning rush hour. Delivery routes along this route should use northbound Exit Five Parkway rather than Cumberland Road during this detour.
