At the February 22, 2021 meeting of the Martinsville Board of Works and Safety, approval was given to make Mulberry Street one way south from Morgan Street to Washington Street. It was also approved to make Mulberry Street one way north from Morgan Street to Pike Street. Crosswalks are to be marked at the intersection of Morgan and Sycamore Streets. These one-way changes will go into effect on April 1, 2021.
The changes are being made to help improve traffic flow on Morgan Street by only having turns from Morgan Street onto Mulberry Street.
The plan is to have these changes in place through the construction period. Later in the summer, the city will review the traffic pattern before deciding if the changes will become permanent.
