Clarksville Town Council & Redvelopment Commssion


The Town of Clarksville is seeking one or more firms to provide assistance with the development and implementation of policies and procedures to meet Federal and State Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Title VI regulations, as well as to review and possibly rewrite the Town's employee handbook. The Town prefers to have one firm complete both tasks, but is open to splitting the project between two firms with one focusing on ADA/Title VI and another on the handbook.

Traffic Alert
TRAFFIC ALERT: Blackiston Mill Road Closure

The Town of Clarksville will be closing Blackiston Mill Road from Lewis and Clark to Potter's Lane from June 5th to August 31st, to allow for the installation of a new Wastewater Force Main. A detour route will be set up that will take traffic along Potter's Lane, Veteran's Parkway and Lewis and Clark. The roadway will be open to local traffic, but there will be delays. The intersection at Gutford Road and Blackiston Mill will be open to cross traffic only during this period. A copy of the detour route is below.

From June 5th to the 22nd, Potter's Lane from Blackiston Mill Road to Progress Way will be closed. During this time, Blackiston Mill Road will be open to Gutford Road.

Regular updates on the project will be posted on the Town website at Any questions about the road closure or the project can be directed to Brittany Montgomery at 812-283-1431.

Additional Info:
During the construction along Blackiston Mill Road, local traffic will have access at all times. Local traffic includes residents, businesses and patrons accessing the businesses along Blackiston Mill Road. Some areas may require a "slight" detour, such as going around the block to access the location or coming from a different direction. The points of local access may change slightly during construction as the construction moves along the roadway. But at no point will individuals be without access to their homes, businesses or places of worship.

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.
