American Structurepoint and the City of Carmel have earned a National Recognition Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies in the 2024 Engineering Excellence Awards for the Range Line Road Corridor.

American Structurepoint provided multiple engineering services to the City of Carmel to transform a 1.5-mile stretch of Range Line Road into a pedestrian-friendly, tree-lined, corridor featuring multi-use paths and six new roundabouts that replaced existing traffic signals.

A landscaped median replaced a two-way, left-turn lane to improve traffic flow and safety by eliminating mid-block left turns. Raised crosswalks, accented by decorative brick pavers, were incorporated at intersections and at several mid-block locations to increase pedestrian safety and visibility. A cycle track, buffered by heavy-duty planters to protect bike traffic, was integrated into the project and replaced one vehicular travel lane.

American Structurepoint provided program management and oversight services for the entire corridor’s design and construction. American Structurepoint also provided design engineering services for roundabouts at three intersections – 116th Street, Medical Drive and Executive Drive – and for the connection pieces between all six roundabouts. The firm also provided landscape architecture design of the corridor’s streetscape.

“American Structurepoint is grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with the City of Carmel to invigorate Range Line Road to improve public safety encourage private business development, and create an inviting, vibrant destination for residents and visitors,” said American Structurepoint Vice President Mike McBride.
