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.
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.
I-69 Finish Line is the sixth and final section of the Interstate 69 connection between Evansville and Indianapolis. The project will upgrade the existing S.R. 37 to interstate standards between Martinsville and Indianapolis.
Governor Eric Holcomb’s Next Level Connections program fully funded the project and accelerated construction by three years. I-69 Finish Line is expected to open to traffic in late 2024, improving safety and reducing travel time.
