Veterans Parkway Paving-1

Traffic is lined up near the I-65 entrance and exit ramps on Veteran's Parkway in Clarksville on Friday. Clarksville awarded a bid for milling and paving Veterans Parkway as part of its Community Crossings grant. 

CLARKSVILLE — In 2016, the town of Clarksville was awarded $1 million through the Indiana Department of Transportation – Community Crossing Grant Program, a town of Clarksville news release stated. The project includes the resurfacing of Veterans Parkway and Green Tree Boulevard.

To reduce traffic complications, the majority of the work is being completed at night. As the project progresses, the Town of Clarksville is providing updates our residents and visitors. The project will be completed prior to the busy holiday shopping season.

Currently Underway:

• Milling and paving of Veterans Parkway and Green Tree Boulevard is 100 percent complete.

• Pavement striping of Veterans Parkway and Green Tree Boulevard should be complete by today, Tuesday.

• Pavement stamping and colorization of crosswalks at the intersections along of Veterans Parkway and Green Tree Blvd continues. This process will be applied to 5 intersections and result in one traffic lane closure in each direction. This work is expected to be complete in early November, weather permitting.

• Construction continues to progress on the entrances into the new Veterans Crossing development, located between Sam Gwin Drive and Green Tree North on Veterans Parkway.

Upcoming Project:

• The paving of the westbound right turn lane from Veterans Parkway onto Lombardy Drive as well as the paving of Lombardy Drive from Dave Pulliam to Veterans Parkway will begin Oct. 24 and is scheduled to be complete in 2 days. Lombardy Drive is scheduled to be completed and re-opened by Nov. 1.

• New traffic lights will be installed at the intersection of Sam Gwin and Veterans Parkway. In addition, utility work required for the Veterans Crossing development will necessitate the closure of Sam Gwin for one to two days. An exact date has not yet been determined. A public notice of closure will be provided 48 hours in advance of closure.

These road projects will leave a lasting positive impact on our community, the release stated. The town of Clarksville will continue to minimize the impact of these projects on traffic.

"We appreciate our residents’ patience and understanding as we continue to make Clarksville an even better place to live, work, shop and invest," the release stated.
