Continued construction on the Red Line bus route will impact travel in the next two weeks.

This week on College Avenue, pavement will be patched and bus stations will be installed, causing temporary lane closures.

Pavement will be patched along Meridian Street starting Thursday, May 23. Night crews will also work on bus pad construction, starting at the 18th Street intersection moving north to 38 Street, with roads open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

A half-block section of Walnut Street east of Capitol Avenue will be closed for up to five days, starting Tuesday, May 21. Walnut Street will be open from Illinois and Muskingum streets. The Indianapolis Cultural Trail will stay open as well.

Paving on Shelby Street will continue through the week, causing lane closures. Once finished, pavement markings will be added.

Virginia Avenue will be resurfaced, causing lane closures, beginning Wednesday, May 22. This will take about one week. Concrete work on platforms near each of the Virginia Avenue stations is taking place this week — at the Woodlawn Avenue stations on Tuesday, May 21; the Merrill Street stations on Thursday, May 23; and the New Jersey stations on Wednesday, May 29.

Curb and sidewalk repair on 30th Street will take place this week, causing some lane restrictions.

Next week, bus pads will be built on one-block segments of College Avenue, starting at 42nd Street and continuing north. Closures will be from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day of construction. One lane of Capitol Avenue will be resurfaced on or after May 30.
