NOBLESVILLE, IN (February 17, 2023) – The City of Noblesville has received a total of $5,970,100 from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization (IMPO) for major improvement projects. This includes a new award of $5,475,700 for phase 3 of Pleasant Street and $494,400 for phase 2 of the Midland Trace Trail. The IMPO governing board approved the grants during its meeting this week.

“We are grateful to have IMPO's and the Noblesville Common Council's partnership and support with these projects. All of the new projects and the previously awarded road and trail projects will provide better and safer mobility in our city,” Noblesville Chris Jensen said.

Noblesville had two of the 16 Central Indiana projects that were awarded a total of $47.3 million.

“The financial support lessens the burden on our city as we make these necessary improvements to address traffic issues and enhance pedestrian connectivity,”

Noblesville's projects include:

Pleasant Street – Phase 3

The Reimagine Pleasant Street project is a multi-year initiative in partnership with Hamilton County that will result in improved east-west connectivity and accessibility in and around Noblesville. This corridor will relieve traffic congestion off of State Road 32 by connecting Hague Road at State Road 32 to State Road 37 and providing an additional bridge crossing over the White River.

“As the 9th largest city in Indiana, this project is crucial to mobility and connectivity in Noblesville and across Hamilton County, especially considering the growth we have experienced and expect going forward,” said Jensen. “It is a strategic transformation of Noblesville to support the future. Pleasant Street and the Midland Trace Trail will create a safe, vibrant corridor for residents to drive, walk or bike to Noblesville.”

The City and its partners broke ground on Phase 1 of Reimagine Pleasant Street in November of 2022. Phase 3 of the project connects Hague Road/State Road 32 to River Road. Phases 2 and 3 are anticipated to begin later this year and will be complete by the end of 2025.

Midland Trace Trail – Phase 2

The 12-foot wide extension of the Midland Trace Trail is being constructed as a part of the Pleasant Street project. The trail project will be built in three phases like the roadway. The trail corridor will ultimately connect from Hague Road/State Road 32 to State Road 37. The Midland Trace Trail provides regional multi-use path connectivity and will connect to the Nickel Plate Trail being built this year. Phase 2 of the project will connect to a portion of the trail currently under construction as a part of Phase 1 and extend it from 11th Street to 19th Street.

The Indianapolis MPO is responsible for planning and programming federal transportation funds in an eight-county Central Indiana region, and this funding allocation is an annual IMPO process. The recipients were selected from a highly competitive pool, and each funded project requires a local match and is judged based on relative technical criteria including impacts on air quality, improvements to congestion, pavement quality, and .
