ZFD hosted a Push-In event at Station 91 on March 29.
Mayor Tim Haak's Monthly Update   
Last month Zionsville Fire Department hosted a Push-In event at Station 91. The community was invited to join ZFD in assisting with "pushing in" the new Engine 91, Medic 91 and Battalion 9.

The new engine carries 700 gallons of water and 30 gallons of firefighting foam. The pump on this new engine can pump 2,000 gallons per minute. It is replacing the 2009 KME which will be a reserve or back up fire truck.

I was glad to be part of this fun and historic tradition, which goes back to when hand drawn fire engines and hose carts had to be pushed back into the station by hand. ZFD continues to honor this ceremony.

An event you don't want to miss is a presentation and panel discussion, "Everyone Belongs Here," on Tuesday, April 23 from 7 - 8:30 p.m. This event is hosted by Zionsville Community Schools and will take place at ZCHS Performing Arts Center. Clergy, town, school and community leaders invite the community and two special guests to this first series event. Rabbi Brett Krichiver and Reverend Shannon Walker Dycus will start the discussion and participate in a panel discussion with audience Q&A. Superintendent Scott Robison will moderate the panel discussion.

This is a free event but you must reserve tickets online here.  

Thanks for your time,

Zionsville Road
Zionsville Road is currently closed for the Zionsville Road reconstruction project. This  project involves the widening of a one-mile section of Zionsville Road, converting it from its current two-lane configuration to three lanes by widening the existing lanes and adding a center turn lane between Technology Center Drive and 106th Street.  
This project also includes adding a 10' multi-use pathway the entire length of the project on the west side of the road as well as a 10' multi-use pathway on the east side of the road from Inglenook and Zionsville Cemetery north to 106th Street. 
The road is anticipated to be closed through November. South Zionsville Road businesses are open during construction.

North-South Connector: This project, currently still in design but anticipated for a 2019 start of construction, will add a new roadway link from Oak Street at Cooper Road north to CR 875 East at Whitestown Road. 
Main Street Bridge Improvements: Nearly complete, this project provides a 10' multi-use path on each side of the Main Street bridge over Eagle Creek, along with a scenic overlook bump-out on each side.
