Construction of the Red Line will be accelerated by four months, allowing for crews to work on some evenings and weekends, according to Lauren Day, director of public relations for IndyGo.
A Red Line open house will be held for the public at the Indianapolis Art Center on Feb. 19, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
As many as 20 construction crews will work along the 13-mile stretch beginning Monday, IndyGo said in a news release. All street parking will be restricted from 38th to 66th on College due to the construction. IndyGo anticipates construction will be finished in August.
“We know the community is eager to see construction complete and have the Red Line up and operating,” CEO Mike Terry said in the release.
After it opens to the public, the Red Line will run from 5 a.m. to 1 a.m. every day of the year. Thirteen electric buses will circulate the 13-mile, 28-stop route, running about every 10 minutes from Broad Ripple to the University of Indianapolis. Popular areas along the way include Fountain Square, the Indiana Statehouse and Garfield Park.
