INDOT to Discuss 'Refined' Option For I-69 Section 6

Indiana Department of Transportation officials will next month hold public meetings to update modifications made to the preferred path of the final section of the I-69 expansion. INDOT says the sessions in Martinsville, Indianapolis and Greenwood will cover a "refined preferred alternative" for Section 6 that has been reviewed by the Federal Highway Administration. The local meeting will take place at Martinsville High School on Tuesday, September 12th from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. 

Mike Dellinger, MCEDC executive director, encourages all interested parties to participate. "Morgan County has good relations with INDOT and state and local leaders continue to work to find solutions that will benefit everyone who will use or be affected by the interstate in the future. Let's keep that momentum by attending and commenting at the September 12th meeting in Martinsville."

Coming soon: Artesian Group presents, listens to downtown ideas
Approximately 150 gathered at the Martinsville Chamber of Commerce building on Tuesday to discuss a large investment project in the downtown area. The Artesian Group is a joint effort between Craig and Mary Fenneman and Doug and Paula Molin, who plan to invest more than $4 million in buildings in downtown Martinsville.

"This is about two-way communication - us communicating to the city of Martinsville what our plans are. It is about us getting feedback from the community," Molin said.

Fenneman announced he had been in negotiations with Big Woods Brewery to open a location at the Union Block Building, 10 E. Morgan St., but that Big Woods would not be part of the project.  He said he is still in negotiations to bring another brewpub to the city and hopes to make that announcement soon.
