FISHERS - A major project focusing on improving traffic flow on State Road 37 will break ground Monday. Hamilton County and the city of Fishers will also launch 37Thrives, an initiative to support businesses in the area during the State Road 37 Improvement Project.

Starting this month, the project will begin to address the traffic congestion and public safety challenges along the State Road 37 corridor from 126th Street to 146th Street.

The project will replace signalized intersections of SR 37 at 126th, 131st, 141st, and 146th Streets with grade separated interchanges, as well as change the signalized intersection at 135th Street to a right-in right-out configuration.

Representatives say the State Road 37 Improvement Project will improve the experience of the more than 50,000 vehicles that travel the route daily.

37Thrives will offer special discounts and specials such as co-op advertising opportunities for businesses, events and information to residents and visitors on how to access businesses during the construction. 

The ground breaking will begin at 10 a.m. at the southwest corner of State Road 37 and 126th Street, onsite at Lockhart Cadillac.
