Parade to close State Road 135 at Nashville on Saturday

A portion of State Road 135 will be closed in Nashville on Saturday as the town celebrates an annual festival.

The Indiana Department of Transportation has issued a permit to the Town of Nashville allowing the closure of State Road 135/Van Buren Street for the community’s Fourth Annual Parade Of Lights. INDOT says that the north-south highway will be closed from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., between School House Lane and Gould Street.

INDOT says that drivers heading north will be rerouted at Pat Reilly Drive to Jefferson Street, to West Washington and Mound Streets. Southbound drivers will detour around the parade route using Artist Drive and Old State Road 46.

Saturday’s parade is slated to begin at School House Lane. It then proceeds to East Washington Street, to Jefferson Street, to West Gould Street, to State Road 135 South, then back to School House Lane via East Washington Street.

If you are attending this event in Nashville, you are urged to bring Christmas presents for the Salvation Army’s Parade Of Lights Toy Drive.
