South Jackson Street to be closed most of Saturday
On Saturday, Oct. 14, South Jackson Street will be closed from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. to allow the project contractor to make up for weather delays that occurred this week, Greencastle Mayor Bill Dory has announced.
Work will take place on Jackson Street from Veterans Memorial Highway south to the city limits, weather permitting.
The contractor, Grady Brothers, will accommodate truck traffic serving Phoenix Closures and Buzzi Unicem. All other traffic is asked to use alternate hours during this time period.
The official detour routes are:
* From the north -- East on Veterans Memorial Highway to U.S. 231; south on U.S. 231; then west on U.S. 40; then north on Manhattan Road to Phoenix Closures.
* From the south -- East on U.S. 40 to U.S. 231; then north on U.S. 231; then west on Veterans Memorial Highway to Jackson Street.
While Jackson Street is closed, Phoenix Closures employees can access their parking lot from the company's south driveway. Buzzi Unicem employees can access their parking from Manhattan Road and Cement Plant Road from the south. Special arrangements have been made for truck traffic and emergency access.
Individuals commuting from Brazil, Terre Haute, Clay County and other points west should use U.S. 231 to access employers in Greencastle.
As always, the city asks the public to proceed with caution while following the detours.
