Multimillion-dollar project on State Road 32 in Westfield, Indiana
WESTFIELD, Ind. (WISH) — Westfield city officials and Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) representatives held a public meeting for the first time Thursday to share details of a multimillion-dollar construction project that will be transforming parts of Westfield.
The project will cost $15 million to help ease traffic through Westfield’s downtown area. INDOT says they’re providing $7.5 million and Westfield is matching that amount to fund the project.
Multimillion-dollar construction project to improve State Road 32 traffic through Westfield
The construction isn’t slated to start until spring 2023 with a scheduled completion in the summer of 2024.
“The biggest thing is it’s going to continue to get worse over the next 10 to 20 years with the growth Westfield is seeing, so really now is the time to correct the issue and to be able to do it in a way that works with INDOT is a win-win for everyone,” said city engineer John Nail.
Three alternatives were presented for constructing State Road 32.
The first option would add a lane for eastbound and westbound traffic, while also adding a roundabout on the corner of East Street.
Making State Road 32 one-way going eastbound and rerouting westbound traffic onto Penn Street is another option.
The other option would be to make State Road 32 one-way going westbound and rerouting eastbound traffic onto Jersey Street.
“It’s a combination of what the citizens want to see, what the city wants to see, what INDOT wants to see, but importantly Federal Highway has to approve these alternatives,” Nail said.
Public input, traffic and environmental information is being gathered to make sure construction is done safely and efficiently.
The project is something Westfield resident Judy Stanley-Shuck is mindful of.
“I live right on State Road 32,” said Stanley-Shuck. “It’s off West Main Street, I live what looks like a bungalow. It was actually built in the 1800s.”
Many residents said congestion on the road is not only impacting drivers, but it’s slowing down commute times for school buses and emergency vehicles. They hope the project will help alleviate those problems.
“There were two emergency vehicles trying to get through,” Stanley-Shuck said. “They eventually got through because people had to pull over, but people are not paying attention and is just headed home just like anybody.”
Nail said the city hears from concerned citizens often about the issues getting to school.
“This project is going to do wonders to really mitigate those issues going forward,” he said.
WESTFIELD, Ind. (WISH) — Indianapolis Colts training camp is open to thousands of fans each year at Grant Park. It’s been an opportunity for Westfield business owners to get a boost from the crowds.
The city of Westfield government office said about 6,000 people from across Indiana and the country attended Saturday’s session of training camp.
“We love the Colts! We support them every year; it’s good to see the players practice,” said Steve Stidhom.
Fans have been flocking to downtown Westfield to cool off after a long and exciting day at training camp. Whether they’re grabbing a bite or staying the night, fans are helping drive business.
“After talking to our local business owners, they do see an uptick in their revenue and people visiting their establishments, so it is a positive impact,” said Todd Burton, chief of staff for the city of Westfield.
Melanie Miles, owner of Rail Restaurant and Bar, said she’s noticed some people dining in with Colts jerseys on.
“We’ve noticed people coming from the training camp are coming in earlier or later — like an earlier lunch or towards dinner,” said Miles.
The owner also said training camp is their busiest time in the summer.
“There are a lot of tournaments that come out here that can be like 20,000 people in a weekend, so we definitely see a lot from that. I feel like that’s kind of more within a one- or two-day timeframe whereas the training camp is through the week,” said Miles.
Bill Silvey and his family drove down for the day from Martinsville.
“It’s not just great for this facility; it’s great for the whole town. I mean they’ve got all kinds of exposure. Everybody knows Colts camp is in Westfield, so I think it’s huge,” Silvey said.
Aug. 15 is the last day of training camp.
