Chestnut Street, between Tipton Street and the railroad tracks at St. Louis Avenue will be closed from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday for the Indiana Bicentennial Torch Relay. Jackson County Bank drive-thru will remain open. No parking and no traffic will be allowed until event concludes. Parking is available in eight Seymour downtown parking lots.

Indiana Department of Transportation maintenance crews will replace a pair of large drainage pipes under State Road 39 approximately 1.5 miles south of State Road 250 between Brownstown and Tampico — weather permitting — on Wednesday.

The north-south highway will close at 8 a.m. between Jackson County roads 300 South and 400 South.

Personnel from INDOT’s Scottsburg unit will install three new 48-inch pipes to satisfy drainage concerns. All work is expected to be completed by 5 p.m.
