Construction contractors plan to close the southbound U.S. 31 ramp to eastbound I-465 this weekend to pave the final surface layer. Work is scheduled to begin Friday, Oct. 14 at 9 p.m., and the closure is expected to end before 6 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 17.
During the closure, motorists will be directed west on I-465 and use the U.S. 421/Michigan Road (Exit 27) interchange to return eastbound on I-465. Drivers with local destinations should seek their best alternate route.
Crews will also close the northbound Keystone Avenue ramp to northbound U.S. 31 for paving. Work is scheduled to begin Friday, Oct. 14 at 8 p.m., and the ramp is expected to open before 6 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 17. During the closure, motorists will be directed to exit to 146th Street and use the northbound parallel ramp lanes to access northbound U.S. 31 at 151st Street.
The southbound U.S. 31 exit ramp to Rangeline Road and Clay Terrace Boulevard will be closed at the same time to pour a small section of concrete pavement. Dynamic message signs will advise motorists to exit early at 151st Street and use the southbound parallel ramp lanes to access Rangeline Road and Clay Terrace Boulevard.
Construction schedules are subject to change, and work may be postponed due to rain.
