The road construction is Phase I of a project slated to switch over to Phase II in September and be completed by October.

A major road project on State Road 37 in Martinsville is set to begin Friday night.

The first phase of the Seymour District Paving Project begins Friday at 7 p.m. to repair and resurface 4.6 miles of S.R. 37 from Indian Creek to just north of S.R. 44.

The Indiana Department of Transportation announced the lane, which ends at a pavement break north of Burton Lane, will close to traffic until 6 a.m. Monday.

In total, the bill for the project is $7.3 million. The state contracted E & B Paving to saw cut areas with failing pavement and remove debris Friday night and pour concrete patches Saturday morning.

According to INDOT, this routine will be repeated every weekend, except when there are IU home football games, until nearly 750 places have been fixed in all four S.R. 37 travel lanes in the Phase I area.

The next part of the project calls for asphalt on all the lanes in September, to be completed during overnight hours throughout the week.

Phase I operations are scheduled to be completed by October 15.

Phase II is set to begin next spring north of Burton Lane and finish beyond the S.R. 44 intersection.
