Jefferson has not been closed. The message display signs are in place to warn about the falling brick concern. However, the street remains open.

The following post was written after the paper reported the street would be closed.

The Rockville Town Council has voted to close Jefferson Street from US36 north to the alley. The reason given is the fear of falling bricks from Harriets. A message display sign has already been placed on the street to warn anyone on the street. The council wanted to make sure the street was closed before the Parke County Covered Bridge Festival. One of the concerns was a strong wind or rain storm blowing bricks off of the building. A local resident raised a concern about snow.

So, now the big question? Will the street be closed permanently or is the closing only being done to protect Rockville visitors? If the closing is not permanent what does that say about the town council concern for the safety of Rockville residents.
