Geotechnical Work In Martinsville Until April 2

(MARTINSVILLE) – Today, geotechnical survey crews will begin taking soil samples and pavement cores at more than a dozen locations along the State Road 37 corridor in and around Martinsville. Crews will be on site from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

Motorists should be aware of changing traffic patterns between the State Road 39 interchange and just north of State Road 44.

  • the Indian Creek overflow culvert, just south of the State Road 39 interchange
  • between Burton Lane and Ohio Street, near the Waters of Martinsville
  • just north of Industrial Drive, near the Spring Valley Mobile Home Park
