JOHNSON COUNTY, Ind. – A semi crash has closed parts of State Road 37 in Johnson County.

Sheriff Duane Burgess says the semi ran into a traffic light pole near County Line Road. He says temporary traffic control systems are being set up as traffic light lines are being repaired.

The Johnson County 911 Center said at 5:24 p.m. that southbound lanes were expected to be closed for the next couple of hours, but northbound lanes are open.

Those traveling westbound on Count Line Road will not be able to go southbound on SR 37.

Drivers are asked to avoid the area and seek alternate routes.
