JOHNSON COUNTY, Ind. (April 16, 2021) – Drivers should stay alert and watch for lane closures and traffic shifts on State Road 37 for I-69 construction.
Single overnight lane closures are expected from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights between Fairview Road and S.R. 144. Traffic crews are restriping S.R. 37 in both directions to shift traffic to the outside shoulder.
A crew is also scheduled to remove reflective lane markers from these S.R. 37 sections between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday. The traffic pattern changes will result in the closure of left-turn access from S.R. 37 southbound to Stones Crossing Road.
Over the coming two weeks, nighttime lane closures will continue as crews place temporary concrete barriers along the center median of S.R. 37. The barriers will help protect paving crews widening S.R. 37.
Traffic will remain shifted to the outside shoulders with narrow lanes through this summer as the median paving is completed in the area.
S.R. 37 lane closure near Martinsville
Construction of the new I-69 northbound lanes has progressed enough to allow installation of drainage inlets in the center median between Indian Creek and S.R. 39/Morton Avenue. This work will require a daytime closure of the right lane of S.R. 37 northbound between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.
The lane closure will vary as the drain inlet installation progresses. Installation is expected to be completed in two to three work days.
