Operations are now underway to open US 31 between Old Meridian and 136th streets. The process of opening US 31 will span over several hours, and crews anticipate US 31 between Old Meridian and 136th streets will open by the end of today, Nov. 25 (barring no unforeseen circumstances). Today, various short-term lane restrictions are possible along US 31 in Carmel for operations such as signage removal.
After opening operations are complete (expected later today), two lanes of traffic will open on northbound and southbound US 31 between Old Meridian and 136th streets. Upon completion of construction in late 2015, three travel lanes will open on northbound and southbound US 31 in Carmel.
Truck traffic may once again use US 31. Carmel expects to reinstate and enforce large truck restrictions on Keystone Parkway once construction on US 31 is complete in late 2015.
Motorists should note that while US 31 is opening
between Old Meridian and 136th streets, construction continues along the US 31 Hamilton County corridor between I-465 and SR 38 through late 2015. Posted speed limits are enforced.
