School Zone Flashing Beacons to be Installed

Recently, some utility markings have appeared around the 86th and Lafayette Road intersection. Based on what we have learned, this is unrelated to the proposed gas station development. School Zone flashing beacons are going to be installed at 6 locations around Fishback Creek Public Academy. INDOT and the City of Indianapolis have contracted with Morphey Construction for the installation. (Contract Number: T -37490-A & Project Number: 1400580)

Morphey Construction will start to set the concrete foundations later this week and will be installing the flashing beacons sometime in April or May. There will be no crosswalks or pushbuttons. This is part of a larger project to install over 400 of these units around the city.
