Road Opening
TRAFFIC ALERT: Emery Crossing Re-Opening

Emery Crossing has been closed for several months due to concerns about the stability of the bank just west of the Mill Creek Bridge. After months of review by the Town's engineers it has been determined that the bank is stable and not at risk of immediate failure. There continues to be concern about the long-term stabilization of the road and the Town will continue to monitor the situation closely for any additional signs of failure. However, in the meantime the roadway will be reopened for traffic.

The reopening will happen on Tuesday, November 10th by 10:00 AM. A full report on the Town's findings will be presented to the Council at next week's meeting.

Lewis and Clark Statue Clarksville is the oldest American town in the old Northwest Territory, which included present-day Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and part of Minnesota. Located on the Falls of the Ohio, the town was founded in 1783 by the legislature of colonial Virginia to recognize the Revolutionary War service of George Rogers Clark and the men of his small army. Clark conceived and commanded the campaign that secured the entire Territory for the new United States.
