Martinsville city streets to close at S.R. 39

MARTINSVILLE, Ind. (March 11, 2020) — City streets will be closed where they intersect State Road 39 starting on or after Thursday, March 12. Crews are lowering a water main to make room for new storm drainage.

Chestnut Street will be closed first at S.R. 39/Morton Avenue for a minimum of three days. Garfield Avenue and York Street will be closed at S.R. 39 on or after Friday, March 13 for a minimum of three days each.

Drivers should continue to expect traffic shifts, flaggers and cross-street closures where crews are working along State Road 39 in Martinsville. Improvements this year will help move more traffic on S.R. 39 during the full closure of S.R. 37 in 2021.

Beginning on or after Monday, March 16, contractors will be removing raised medians at the S.R. 39 intersections with Morton Avenue and Morgan Street. Once median work is complete, paving crews will be performing patching work on S.R. 39 between S.R. 37 and the White River.
