(MARTINSVILLE) – Warmer weather means construction on I-69 Section 6 will begin in earnest this week.
Today, Milestone Contractors and subcontractor crews will be in Martinsville clearing trees and brush, placing erosion control and preparing right-of-way for future bridge and roadway construction. Work will be limited to three areas in town: at South Street/Home Avenue near Martinsville High School, at Grand Valley Boulevard east of State Road 37, and on Cramertown Loop just south of Florida Ave.
Martinsville residents should expect to see and hear a variety of equipment needed to perform the necessary work, including bucket trucks, wood chippers, trenchers, excavators and heavy trucks with trailers. Traffic will not be restricted, but motorists are urged to be aware of construction equipment being transported and staged.
You can learn more about the project at the I-69 Section 6 website. You can sign up for this and other newsletters at INDOT’s Phone and Contact List page.
