Franklin Street Closing for Road Improvements Project

The City of Martinsville will close Franklin Street between Liberty Street and Dillard Street beginning the week of Monday, March 7th. City crews will be installing drainage improvements and curb and gutter along this section of the roadway.

During construction, Franklin Street will be closed to through traffic south from Liberty Street and north of Dillard Street, near Lester Home Center. Residents along this section of Franklin Street will be allowed access to their properties during the project. General motorists are encouraged to choose alternate routes to avoid the construction zone. Construction is scheduled to be completed later this summer.

If you have questions regarding this project, please contact the City Engineering Department at    403-5159.
