Allisonville Road Corridor Revitalization
About the Study
In summer 2022, Mayor Scott Fadness established the Allisonville Road Steering Committee to work alongside HWC Engineering to conduct a study to examine the commercial center of the Allisonville Road corridor between 106th and 126th Streets. The limits of the corridor are anchored by existing greenspace and recreational areas, including the White River to the west, Conner Prairie to the north, and the future 125-acre White River Park to the south. However, the commercial center of the corridor—one of the city’s original retail centers—is aging, and the committee was charged with creating a plan to ensure that this area remains a vibrant destination for business and leisure for years to come.
In March 2023, the City of Fishers announced the findings from the Allisonville Road Corridor Study and its plan for revitalizing the heavily traveled corridor in west Fishers. The resulting plan includes a focus on:
- Greening the corridor
- Road and walkability improvements
- Enhanced connectivity
- Collaboration with local business partners to infuse vibrancy in the area
As part of the plan, Kroger will relocate from the west side of Allisonville Road near the 116th Street intersection to build a new, expanded store on the east side of Allisonville Road. The new 120,000 square foot store on the east side of Allisonville Road will include features such as an expanded assortment of “fresher than fresh” foods, expanded Kroger Pickup, wider aisles, Starbucks, even fresh, store-made popcorn.

New Median Designs
One focus of the new plan is boosting greenspace and enhancing the streetscape to achieve vibrancy and improved care for the corridor. The City is in the early stages of these improvements, but new median designs and beautification efforts by the Department of Public Works are already improving the vibrancy of this area.
96th Street Roundabout
Road improvements and enhanced connectivity are another focus of the new plan. In spring 2023, the City will begin the reconstruction of the existing Michigan Left intersection at 96th Street and Allisonville Road to become a two-lane roundabout adjacent to the new River Place development The roundabout is anticipated to be completed by the end of the year.
116th Street Roundabout
In spring 2024, the City will begin construction on another two-lane roundabout at the intersection of 116th Street and Allisonville Road, further improving the flow of traffic and aesthetics of the area.
Redevelopment and business partnerships with local businesses are identified as key priorities in the new plan. In March 2023, CRG Residential and the City of Fishers broke ground on River Place—a $135 million mixed-use project at the northwest corner of 96th Street and Allisonville Road. The project includes a luxury apartment community, for-sale townhomes, and commercial retail space situated next to the future White River Park.
Fishers White River Park
Set to open in 2025, White River Park is a 125-acre park adjacent to the White River and located at the intersection of 96th Street and Allisonville Road. The park will provide new greenspace and recreational opportunities on the southwestern edge of our community.
