New ramps to open near Henderson Ford Road

·2 min read

Drivers should watch for changing traffic patterns on or after Thursday, Dec. 2 near Ind. 37 and Henderson Ford Road.

Northbound Ind. 37 traffic will shift back across the center median onto new pavement, restoring divided traffic past the Egbert Road overpass. Ind. 37 remains two lanes – one in each direction – with a reduced speed limit for local traffic between Ind. 144 and the Ind. 37 closure in Martinsville.

With the traffic shift, the new Henderson Ford Road interchange will open and Ind. 37 access to Ennis Road will close permanently. The temporary Ind. 37 signal at Ennis Road will be removed.

The three new entrance and exit ramps opening to traffic are:

  1. Ind. 37 northbound exit ramp to Henderson Ford Road

  2. Henderson Ford Road on-ramp to Ind. 37 northbound

  3. Henderson Ford Road on-ramp to Ind. 37 northbound

Drivers should watch for Henderson Ford Road on-ramp traffic merging into Ind. 37, which is one lane in each direction.

Roundabouts

Henderson Ford Road traffic should expect to yield to roundabout traffic using the new entrance and exit ramps. Roundabouts are planned at six of the eight I-69 Finish Line interchanges and include concrete aprons to accommodate large trucks.

New access roads

New service roads are opening along Ind. 37 in Johnson County and southern Marion County to maintain local access for intersections that I-69 construction is closing. Travis Road, Stones Crossing Road, Olive Branch Road, Bluff Acres Drive and Bluffdale Road access to Ind. 37 is now closed permanently.

East of Ind. 37, a new frontage road is expected to open on or after Wednesday, Dec. 1 north of County Road 144. It will connect with the section already open between Travis Road and Stones Crossing Road.

Another new road is expected to open west of Ind. 37 on or after Wednesday, Dec. 1 connecting Wicker Road to Glenns Valley Lane. Shortly after the connector road opens, the Ind. 37 intersection at Glenns Valley Lane will close permanently.
