DigIndy Tunnel System Work to Close E. Beecher St. and E. Pleasant Run Parkway S. Dr.

6/3/2022
 
INDIANAPOLIS – As Citizens Energy Group continues to make progress on its DigIndy Tunnel System, upcoming construction will result in the closure of E. Beecher St. between E. Pleasant Run Parkway N. Dr. and E. Pleasant Run Parkway S. Dr., as well as E. Pleasant Run Parkway S. Dr. between E. Beecher St. and E. Raymond St. (see map). Pleasant Run Trail access also will be affected. Work is expected to begin on June 6 and will last approximately 18 months.

Street parking will be limited near closure areas. Traffic controls to maintain local access will be in place periodically for the duration of the work. Motorists should exercise caution and follow all posted detour signage.

This work is a component of the Pleasant Run Tunnel project, which is part of the larger DigIndy Tunnel System. Once the 7.4-mile Pleasant Run Tunnel is complete in 2025, sewer overflows now going to Pleasant Run Creek will be redirected to the tunnel, creating a healthier, more vibrant waterway and community.

The open portions of the DigIndy Tunnel System already have prevented more than 3 billion gallons of sewage from entering our local waterways. The entire system will be complete in 2025. Learn more at www.DigIndyTunnel.com.

We know construction is never without its challenges, and we greatly appreciate your patience. For more information on Citizens’ construction projects, visit www.CitizensEnergyGroup.com/Construction.
