Will your business be affected by road construction over the next few years? If you are in Martinsville, the answer is most likely “Yes”!

Road construction related to the transformation of State Rd. 37 to Interstate 69 in our area is now part of our daily lives and with that comes some challenges for residents and businesses alike. Recently, the Martinsville Chamber of Commerce and Visit Morgan County coordinated a meeting for local small business owners and managers to help them navigate the challenges ahead. Topics addressed included:

  • I-69 and related projects timeline (See map below.)
  • INDOT communications
  • Local, free resources for your business
  • How to make the most of your social media
  • Collaborative marketing and events
  • The importance of being intentional in your choices
  • And more

Thank you to our presenters for sharing valuable information:

  • Josh Messmer, City of Martinsville Engineer
  • Andy Dietrick, INDOT Major Projects
  • Mindy Peterson, VP – C2 Strategic Communications
  • Tosha Daugherty, Executive Director – Visit Morgan County
  • Jod Woods – Legacy Business Consultants

THANK YOU to Annabelle Cleary, MHS REWIND, for taking time to join us and recording this event for those who were unable to attend.
