New Look 38th & Illinois
This corner is turning into a happenin’ spot! Thanks to a Great Places 2020 Maple Crossing grant from LISC, we’ve now got a new look traffic signal box designed by artist Bill Rasdell. We’re also sporting a well lit Under the Sun sign to guide folks to their fantastic Banana Box deals, and we’ve got ASISTA Tax Service opening its doors for business today.
You may not dig the construction, but we hope you’ll DigIndy.
As Citizens Energy Group continues its $2 billion investment to improve Indianapolis’ waterways through the DigIndy Tunnel System, upcoming construction will result in lane closures and detours.
On or after October 8th, 2018 through December 31st, 2019*, multiple intersections within the Windsor Park neighborhood will be impacted by large sewer construction related to the DigIndy Tunnel System. This map includes anticipated detour routes, which are subject to change. Detour routes will be clearly posted. Commuters should take precaution and follow all posted signage. Local access to homes and businesses will remain open.
We know construction is never without its challenges, but we’re committed to minimizing the disruption while working hard to bring cleaner waterways back to our neighborhoods.Your patience is appreciated.

The Voices of a Neighborhood: A History Exhibit, Uncut
Thursday, October 4th, Midtown Indy will premier a neighborhood history exhibit that’s been a long time coming; almost a century in the making if viewed in historical terms. Designer Atsu Kpotufe is working with Midtown Indy and influential neighborhood voices to reveal some pieces of the midtown area fabric that have gone unnoticed, unwoven, and uncelebrated by many. Plenty is at play here: perceptions, policies, passage of time, and the properties upon which this nearly century-old saga has played out.
We attempt not to rewrite, but instead more fully and accurately tell the history of the heart of midtown. And we invite the whole city to join in this moment of education and celebration. Event link here.
