U.S. 231 to close temporarily

Drivers who normally take 231 through Crawfordsville will have to find an alternate route for a few days.

Beginning Monday at 8 a.m., the Indiana Department of Transportation will close Washington Street / U.S. 231 at the railroad tracks. CSX Railroad will be on hand to make repairs. The closure should last until Friday at noon.

A detour will be set up that follows U.S. 231 south to east on Wabash Avenue, and then south on Mill Street and west on South Boulevard and back to U.S. 231. Traffic traveling in the opposite direction will use the same detour in reverse.
