  • An Indiana Southern Railroad contractor has scheduled S.R. 39 railroad crossing repairs this weekend (July 10-11) between Morgan Street and Morton Avenue in Martinsville. S.R. 39 will remain open with flaggers for two nights of repairs between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.
  • Ohio Street traffic is expected to shift about 50 feet northeast later this week onto its new alignment near S.R. 37. The realigned Southview Drive is expected to open the same day between Mahalasville Road/Artesian Avenue and Williamsburg Apartments. This will allow construction to continue for the I-69 interchange and bridge over Ohio Street.
  • Watch for additional construction east of S.R. 37 near Teeters Road and Myra Lane. Crews have begun earthwork to realign Teeters Road and access for the nearby fish hatchery.
  • Stones Crossing Road/County Road 700 N is scheduled to close permanently east of S.R. 37 starting on Wednesday. The detour follows Morgantown Road and Smith Valley Road to S.R. 37. A new access road being built this summer will connect Stones Crossing Road with Travis Road, which is also permanently closed east of S.R. 37.
  • Watch for S.R. 37 lane closures midday today and Wednesday between Bluff Acres Drive and SR 144. Crews are moving dynamic message signs to the right shoulder so that grading work can begin in the center median.
  • Local traffic on S.R. 37 southbound is expected to shift onto new pavement and bridges next week from S.R. 144 to just south of Henderson Ford Road in Morgan County. Northbound traffic will shift across the median more than one week later after temporary concrete barriers are moved on this section of S.R. 37.
  • Nighttime S.R. 37 lane closures are planned this week between Belmont Avenue and Bluffdale Road in Johnson County. Road crews are preparing to shift traffic in this section of S.R. 37 in the coming weeks to begin construction of the new I-69 southbound pavement and bridges.
  • Move over and slow down for daytime lane closures this week on S. Meridian Street near I-465 and shoulder closures near the I-465 interchange at S.R. 67/Kentucky Avenue. Crews are drilling to collect soil samples. A mobile lane closure is also planned on Wednesday for Madison Avenue near I-465.
  • Expect an increase in flagging activity on local roads near S.R. 37 and I-465 for construction equipment access and utility work. This includes Wicker Avenue west of S.R. 37, Bluff Road south of County Line Road, and Carson Avenue and Mann Road near I-465.
  • Two local roads are scheduled to close on or after Monday, July 26. Thompson Road will close permanently between Warman Avenue and Stoops Freightliner-Quality Trailer, with Sunshine Gardens neighborhood access maintained from Epler Avenue. Belmont Avenue and Winslet Boulevard east of S.R. 37 are expected to close for two weeks of utility work near the south entrance to Aspen Lakes Apartments.
  • We also want to update you on local road closures for bridge replacement over I-465. Keystone Avenue is expected to close in late July and Mooresville Road Bypass in August. Click to view the detour maps for Keystone Avenue and Mooresville Road Bypass.

The actual starting date and duration for work and any closures may be adjusted if inclement weather or other unforeseen activities occur.
