Accompanying intersection restrictions at E Pleasant Run Parkway will be present through two phases of roadway closure.  

INDIANAPOLIS – Citizens Energy Group today announced the upcoming closure of a segment of Churchman Avenue on or after Monday, October 2. The impacted segment—between the North and South drives of E Pleasant Run Parkway—will allow for two coordinated projects: a utility line relocation and an excavation associated with the DigIndy program. The first phase will last approximately one week. Motorists and cyclists may detour around the closure via Minnesota Street, State Avenue, and Prospect Street. 

The Pleasant Run Trail will be unimpeded during both this and subsequent project phases. 

A second phase of construction is anticipated to begin on or after Monday, October 9 and last for up to six weeks, keeping the same portion of Churchman Avenue closed and additionally impacting a small segment of E Pleasant Run Parkway S Drive located immediately to the east. Travelers may continue using the same detour routes from the first phase, or they may choose to detour using a tighter route via Villa Avenue and Pleasant Run Parkway N Drive. 

Travelers are reminded to follow all signage and to be especially careful when near an active construction zone.
