PROJECT DETAILS

SECTION ONE

Six Points Interchange to CR 200 South - This section is complete and is a median devided 4 lane major arterial.

SECTION TWO

CR 200 South to US-36 (Rockville Road) - Right of way has been preserved and it just needs to be brought to construction. Once it is under construction this site will be updated. It is dificuolt to determine who is leading construction of this project or what the timeline is.

SECTION THREE

US-36 (Rockville Road) to CR 300 North - This section is complete and open to traffic. Currently it is constructed as a 2 lane arterial street, but it has enough right of way preserved to widen it to 4 lanes or even 6 lanes if necessary. It is possible as traffic demand increases that this could be done.

SECTION FOUR

CR 300 North to Just North of US-136 - This section of the parkway is currently planned as a rural limited acces roadway. Currently it is assumed that the roadway will be 2 lanes with room to expand to 4 lanes at a future time. Construction of a new overpass at US-136 and the railroad is also part of this project. Currently there is no timeline available for this project, and it is uncertain which agency is responsible for this project. Once that information is available it will be updated.

SECTION FIVE

Just North of US-136 to 56th Street (CR 600N) - This was the most recently completed section of the parkway which was completed in 2009. This section and the new interchange at I-74 paves the way for the completion of the northern sections of the parkway. Currently this only serves as a connector road for US-136 and 56th Street.

SECTION SIX

This final section of the Ronald Reagan Parkway was not in the original plans. Once complete it will link I-74 to I-65 near the IN-267 interchange. This
