Monon Trail improvement project begins

Half-mile segment closed for work


INDIANAPOLIS — The Department of Public Works (DPW) has closed a section of the Monon Trail near 75th Street for about two weeks to resurface the trail, install new guardrails, and fix a drainage problem that has been eroding the trail and making it less safe and enjoyable for users.

During the project, bike traffic will be prohibited on the Monon Trail between 86th and 75th streets. Pedestrians will be permitted use of the trail between 86th Street and the construction zone. Bike and pedestrian detour signage will be in place along the detour route. The detour route will utilize Washington Boulevard to 84th Street and continue on Pennsylvania Street until 75th Street where bikers can intersect the Monon.
