Indiana Department of Transportation contractors will restrict the right lane of southbound U.S. 31 between 151st and 161st streets tonight at 8:00 p.m. to repair damaged pavement within the construction work zone. This restriction will end by 6 a.m. Contractors are also planning to repeat the restriction to repair another location between 151st and 161st streets on Friday night from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Beginning Monday, April 15, 161st Street will close between Oakridge Road and Union Street for construction of a new roundabout interchange. The official detour will be signed and will direct traffic north to the signalized 169th Street intersection. The closure is expected to last no more than 120 days.
The New U.S. 31 Hamilton County project will include new freeway exits at 146th Street, 151st Street and 161st Street. New ramps will connect 146th Street to the north with Greyhound Pass and 151st Street with a “split-diamond” interchange. A new freeway exit at 161st Street will have roundabouts controlling ramp and cross traffic. Local traffic on Union Street and 156th Street will pass under U.S. 31 with no on or off ramps.
