Greensburg — On May 13, Franklin Street between Washington and Main (Eastside of Downtown Square) will close to traffic for three months for the streetscape improvement project.


The City of Greensburg and HWC Engineering has contracted Globe Asphalt and Schutte Excavating for the reconstruction and improvement of Franklin Street between Washington and Main. This project, funded by Community Crossings Matching Grant from the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), the Indiana Regional Economic Acceleration and Development Initiative (READI), Federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), and local match funds, will last from May 13 to August 13, subject to weather. Businesses on the east side of the square will remain open during construction with minimal disruption to daily operations. Businesses affected by the construction include Magnolia Mercantile, County Supply Hardware, Elliot’s Insurance, Moeller Insurance, Skeleton Crew, Greensburg Printing, Stephen Taylor Law Offices, and Link’s Tavern.


Businesses can be accessed by entering the sidewalk on the north and south ends of the block, and also by the alley behind Skeleton Crew and Greensburg Printing.


Parking during the construction of Franklin Street may be limited, so visitors and residents are reminded to utilize the additional public parking lots and street parking that surround the Downtown Square. A map detailing those locations can be found here.
