INDIANAPOLIS -- As of Monday, construction on the long-anticipated IndyGo Red Line is officially underway.

Last week, crews began increasing signage and shifting traffic patterns on Shelby Street between Hanna Avenue and Prospect Street.

Monday, work began on Shelby Street between Troy Avenue and Hanna Avenue. Cones are in place to shift traffic but the good news is, there will be no road closure -- just restrictions and shifts along the construction route.

Construction includes roadway and sidewalk improvements.

This is all part of the 13-Mile IndyGo Red Line project, stretching from Broad Ripple to the University of Indianapolis. The goal is to increase local transit service by 70 percent.

Here is a three week look ahead on plans:

  • Shelby Street from Hanna Avenue to Troy Avenue: Roadway and sidewalk improvements from Monday, June 4 through Friday, June 15.
  • Shelby Street from Troy Avenue to Raymond Street: Roadway and sidewalk improvements from Monday, June 11 through Friday, June 22.
  • Shelby Street from Raymond Street to Prospect Street: roadway and sidewalk improvements from Monday, June 18 through July 3.
