(MARTINSVILLE) – 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.
Mahalasville Road will be closed to all traffic between the 90-degree curve, just south of Gardner Avenue, and Country View Apartments. Local traffic only will drive through gaps in barricades south of S.R. 37 to access Gardner Avenue and other nearby properties.
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.
Commercial Boulevard is also closed for ongoing realignment and reconstruction work in the area. When completed, access will be restored between Industrial Drive and Gardner Avenue.
