CLARKSVILLE, IN (March 28, 2023) – The team planning the future of transportation in Clarksville is inviting residents to learn more about what the future holds. Engineers at Clark-Dietz were tapped to assist the Town of Clarksville with creating a new thoroughfare plan which will serve as a guide for the development of future streets and roads in the area.
A survey was recently mailed to every home in Clarksville with the goal of learning how residents get from place to place in Southern Indiana. Engineers from Clark-Dietz have now scheduled a public meeting to share the results of that survey, and to unveil some of their findings in regards to the current transportation needs in Clarksville. That public meeting is scheduled for Thursday, April 20th from 6:00-7:30pm at the Clarksville Library.
“Clarksville residents often say that they want to have more input in how our Town operates,” said Communications Director Ken Conklin. “This is the perfect opportunity for them to have a real impact on the future of our Town’s infrastructure. We hope residents will make the time to attend.”
The Connecting Clarksville Thoroughfare Plan was made possible thanks to funding from the Kentuckiana Regional Planning & Development Agency (KIPDA). In addition to the public survey, the planning team researched the makeup of Clarksville’s transportation system as well as the current Town codes for new and existing roads. The team also reviewed local traffic data, crash data, and the current functional classifications of roads, as well as working with stakeholders such as TARC, Clarksville Community Schools, and others to determine the needs of the community.
Following the public meeting, Clark-Dietz will finalize the thoroughfare plan and present it to the Clarksville Town Council for adoption in June. The plan will then be used as a guide any time the Town of Clarksville builds a new street or makes changes to current roadways.
