(Richmond, IN)--Soon, two full blocks of East Main Street will be completely shut down for construction. Beginning Thursday, the 500 block will shut down. That closure will combine with the shutdown of the 600 block of East Main, which has already been in effect for several weeks. Kate Barber gave Richmond Common Council an update Monday night. "There will be a period of times when both blocks will be under construction, and that is due to unforeseen utility work and weather," Barber said. A tentative reopening date is June 19. Also, Barber said there would be additional construction this week at 7th and East Main.
