CLARKSVILLE, IN (September 8, 2022) – Improvements are coming to some Clarksville neighborhoods thanks to a grant from the Indiana Department of Transportation. The Town was awarded nearly $270,000 as part of the Fall 2021 Community Crossing Program.
The funding will be used for the repaving of several neighborhood roads near Blackiston Mill Road in central Clarksville. As a requirement for the grant, the Town will be responsible for providing a 100% match for the state funds. Funding for the match will be paid out of the Local Roads and Streets Fund.
The streets will be milled to remove excess asphalt and re-crown the surface to correct any drainage issues. New asphalt will be installed to match the existing curb lines (where curbs exist) and pavement striping will be installed where necessary. In addition, curb replacement/replacement may be necessary in some locations.
This project will kick off in the next two weeks with concrete curb and gutter work, followed by the milling and paving. The project is expected to be completed by early October.
The impacted streets include:
• Driftwood Dr. from Elmwood Dr. to Idlewood Dr.
• Elmwood Dr. from Briarwood to Idlewood Dr. (Including the two cul-de-sacs)
• Idlewood Dr. from Briarwood Dr. to Elmwood Dr.
• Keats Dr. from Lowell Ct. to the street’s end.
• Longfellow Dr. from Blackiston Mill Rd. to the street’s end.
• Milton Ct. from Longfellow Dr. to the street’s end.
• Whittier Dr. from Longfellow Dr. to Keats Dr.
