Streetscape Project Overview
Butler University is pleased to be partnering with the City of
Indianapolis on a streetscape project that will improve the public
entrances and gateways to campus. Project goals include
beautification, traffic calming, and public wayfinding.
The initial phase of the streetscape project will commence in
April 2014 and will primarily address Sunset Avenue between Hampton
Drive and 49th Street. Additional areas of attention include the
intersection of Sunset Avenue and 46th Street and the curve at
Sunset Avenue and 49th Street.
Maps and renderings available on this site detail the Phase I
location and additional information regarding detours, campus
access, and parking during construction.
Phase I of the streetscape project will last approximately one
year, with additional phases and campus thoroughfares being
addressed in subsequent years. A full Phase I schedule is available
on the "Project Timeline" feature.

- $3 million in upgrades to Sunset Avenue
