Mahalasville Rd. to Close South of SR 37 on or after July 6

July 2, 2020 - Another long-term road closure will soon begin in Martinsville to rebuild and realign Mahalasville Road in preparation for major I-69 interchange construction next year. Mahalasville Road south of State Road 37 is scheduled to close to through traffic on or after Monday, July 6. The closure is expected to continue through fall.

Drivers can access Grand Valley Boulevard using the newly completed overpass connecting South Street with Grand Valley Shoppes or via S.R. 252 and Cramertown Loop.

Drivers can access the area west of Mahalasville Road using Burton Lane and Southview Drive. Drivers can access Mahalasville Road east of the full closure using Artesian Avenue, which opened last year.

During the closure, construction crews will be completely rebuilding and realigning Mahalasville Road and nearby drainage to make room for a future I-69 interchange.

SR 31 Southbound to Shift Across Median in Martinsville

June 5, 2020 - Drivers should prepare for a new traffic pattern on State Road 37 at the S.R. 39 interchange. On or after Monday, June 8, I-69 Finish Line contractors plan to shift southbound traffic across the center median at the S.R. 39 interchange. S.R. 37 southbound will merge into one lane before crossing the median.

With the change, only the current northbound side of S.R. 37 will be in use, carrying one lane of traffic in each direction. The new configuration is expected to remain in place for the next few months. The change will mean width restrictions will be in place on S.R. 37 between Liberty Church Road and just north of S.R. 39.

The current traffic pattern for S.R. 37 northbound will remain in place. Traffic is encouraged to merge into the left lane as the right lane remains an exit-only lane onto S.R. 39/Morton Avenue in Martinsville.

The Indiana Department of Transportation urges drivers to slow down and avoid distractions as they approach the new traffic pattern.

This new traffic pattern will allow contractors to demolish and rebuild the S.R. 37 southbound lanes between S.R. 39 and Liberty Church Road and the bridge over Indian Creek. The rebuilt southbound lanes will be in use during next year’s temporary closure of S.R. 37 between S.R. 39 and Morgan Street.

Watch for signal work

On Monday crews will be doing work at S.R. 39 and Morgan Street that requires the deactivation of the signal at that intersection from approximately 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Flaggers will control traffic at the intersection while the signal is down.

Crews were expected to stripe a second dedicated turn lane Friday for eastbound S.R. 144 traffic turning left onto northbound S.R. 37. Signal changes are scheduled for Monday. This will help move traffic through the detour during the temporary closure of S.R. 37 in Martinsville next year.

Watch for ongoing signal installation work in the coming weeks at S.R. 144 and Mann Road/Centenary Drive. Traffic crews removed the existing flasher this week.

Temporary signals planned for S.R. 37 at Banta Road and S.R. 144 at Old S.R. 37/N. Waverly Park Road have been installed and will be turned on closer to planned construction closures.

Perry Road to close

Contractors expect to close Perry Road between Perry Lane and S.R. 37 on or after Monday, June 8. Traffic will be detoured over New Harmony Road and Cragen Road to S.R. 37.

A temporary access point will open nearby connecting Lincoln Road with S.R. 37, allowing traffic to turn right in and right out only. Lincoln Road traffic wanting to travel south on S.R. 37 is encouraged to use caution and make a permitted U-turn at Big Bend Road.


Old State Road 37 to Close North of Maple Turn Road

May 21, 2020 – State Road 37 access to Old S.R. 37 north of Maple Turn Road is scheduled to close permanently starting Thursday afternoon, May 21. Drivers will use the improved Myra Lane and Old S.R. 37 south of Maple Turn Road to access S.R. 37.

When construction is completed in this area, a new bridge will connect Old S.R. 37 with Egbert Road east of S.R. 37. Local traffic will enter and exit I-69 at the Henderson Ford Road interchange.


Changing Traffic Patterns at SR 39 and Morton Avenue

April 24, 2020 – Drivers should expect flaggers and changing traffic patterns at the State Road 39 and Morton Avenue intersection next week.

There will be a lot of construction activity continuing in the area. Harriet Street is scheduled to close for several weeks, starting Monday, with traffic being routed onto Dickson Avenue and Cherry Street.

Businesses northwest of the intersection may be accessed using their rear entrances off Josephine Street. This includes Big Red Liquors, Citizens Bank, Morgan Insurance Group, Courtland Title & Escrow, and Forguites, Weimer and Haden, LLC. Signage is in place.

A little farther north on SR 39 customers can still get to Brothers on 39 restaurant using West Mitchell Avenue.


SR 37 Traffic Patterns Changing South of SR 39 Interchange

April 17, 2020 – On or after Monday, April 20, traffic on S.R. 37 south of Martinsville is changing.

Northbound S.R. 37 from Indian Creek will open to two lanes. The left lane will carry northbound through traffic, and the right lane will exit onto S.R. 39.

Traffic on southbound S.R. 37 will be moved to the right lane just south of S.R. 39 so crews can work in the median.

This traffic configuration will be in place for the remainder of this construction season. Dynamic signage will indicate merge points and help prepare drivers for slowing or stopped traffic.

S.R. 39 traffic shift scheduled

Beginning on or after Monday, April 20, S.R. 39 traffic lanes are scheduled to shift between Morton Avenue and the railroad crossing. S.R. 39 traffic will shift to one side of the road to allow crews to widen the other side of the road.

S.R. 39 is being improved this year to safely move more traffic during the 2021 closure of S.R. 37 in Martinsville. Daytime traffic flagging is ongoing on S.R. 39 between S.R. 37 and the White River for pavement patching and utility work.

For Safety Reasons, Left Turns Prohibited at SR 37 and Perry Road

April 15, 2020 – For the safety of motorists and crews working in the area, left turns will be prohibited at the State Road 37 intersection with Perry Road. Concrete barriers and construction equipment limit driver visibility in the area. The change will begin on or after Wednesday, April 15.

To access southbound S.R. 37 from Perry Road, motorists should turn right (northbound) on S.R. 37 and use the nearby crossover at Old SR 37 to make a U-Turn. Southbound S.R. 37 traffic is asked to make a safe U-turn at Cragen Road to access Perry Road.

Northbound S.R. 37 may still turn right onto Perry Road, and Perry Road may still turn right onto northbound S.R. 37.

A Perry Road overpass crossing S.R. 37 is scheduled to open this fall, connecting with Old S.R. 37 and the northeast side of the highway. When I-69 construction is completed in this area, local traffic will enter and exit the highway at the Henderson Ford Road or S.R. 144 interchanges. Perry Road will not connect with I-69.


Waverly Road Access to SR 37 to Close on or After April 14

April 9, 2020 - Waverly Road access to and from State Road 37 will permanently close on or after Tuesday, April 14. The official detour for local traffic will follow Big Bend Road and Old S.R. 37.  The full closure will allow crews to begin earthwork on the approaches to the new Waverly Road overpass.

Waverly Road is scheduled to reopen this fall as an overpass crossing S.R. 37. Whiteland Road will also be extended along the highway and connect with Waverly Road this fall, just south of the new bridge.

When I-69 construction is completed in this area, Waverly Road will be the only local street that crosses the interstate between Perry Road and S.R. 144. Waverly Road will not connect with the highway. Local traffic will enter and exit I-69 at the S.R. 144 or Henderson Ford Road interchanges.
