Indiana Department of Transportation officials strongly urge motorists to avoid traveling southbound State Road 37 this Thursday (MAY 19) between 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. between Martinsville and Bloomington.

A jumbo transformer weighing 200 tons is scheduled for delivery from maxresdefaultrth of College Avenue in Monroe County.  At that location, it will placed in the median—restoring S.R. 37 southbound traffic flow.   

On Friday (MAY 20), motorists will again be impacted while the transformer is moved to Hoosier Energy’s substation at Crossover Road.  Officials anticipate a 30-minute delay to traffic on S.R. 37 at Crossover Road.

The move is being made under a permit issued by the state.
