Drivers may encounter delays Friday (and several days in the future), as large beams are delivered to the I-69 construction zone in Martinsville.

A total of 14 bridge beams for a State Road 44 overpass will be placed over what eventually will be I-69.  Drivers using Twin Branch Road may encounter delays as the beams are delivered.

“The route that the beams are taking, down State Road 37, to Twin Branch Road to the State Road 44, State Road 37 work zone,” INDOT Spokesperson Natalie Garrett said.

Work will be done over the next several months on other overpasses linking downtown Martinsville to the commercial district east of town.

“There are a number of other bridges that will have beam deliveries over the next few months,” said Garrett.

The Martinsville phase of I-69 is still on pace to be completed by the end of this year.
