INDIANAPOLIS -- As the Red Line construction continues, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department will step up patrols in areas that people frequently use as detours on Indy's north side.
The Mapleton-Fall Creek Association tweeted to Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett, saying there have been many crashes in the neighborhood, and the people who live there are getting concerned.

Keith Cruz, the VP of Community Affairs for the Mapleton-Fall Creek Association, has lived in the area for 12 years and wants to remind people that College Avenue is a residential street.
"There are very few businesses on College," he said. "This is where people live. Kids are out on the sidewalks. People use the sidewalks for walking. ... I would just like people to be careful when they drive."
Hogsett's team responded on Twitter, saying IMPD will increase patrols in the area. On Monday, a truck flipped in a crash near the intersection of 30th Street and College Avenue.
Thank you for reaching out - @IMPDnews is planning to increase patrols and beat officers on the streets/intersections that are impacted by construction/detours to help slow down speeds in area neighborhoods and intersections.
