Highway 37 through Martinsville is closing Saturday to upgrade to interstate standards from Martinsville to Indianapolis — completing I-69 through Indiana.
Only weather could delay the closure. The five-mile stretch of Highway 37 will be closed for most of 2021.
The action allows work to be completed in one construction season, as opposed to two years.
The detour uses Ind. 39, Ind. 67, and Ind. 144.
The five-mile stretch of Highway 37 will be closed for most of 2021.
Updates on the closure can regularly be found online at i69finishline.com/closure, or on the project’s social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram at @I69FinishLine.
