09/05/13 The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces ramp and lane restrictions in addition to a single, 20 minute complete closure of U.S. 31 just south of the U.S. 20 Bypass on Thursday, September 5th. Crews will be removing the overhead signage on U.S. 31 just south of the U.S. 20 Bypass access point.
Beginning around 7 a.m. Thursday, September 5th, between Johnson Road and the U.S. 20 Bypass, the northbound right lane of U.S. 31 will close, along with two U.S. 20 Bypass ramps: the ramp from eastbound U.S. 20 to southbound U.S. 31 and the ramp from northbound U.S. 31 to eastbound U.S. 20 (map attached).
Sometime between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. crews will use cranes to remove the signage over U.S. 31 in this area, forcing a complete closure of U.S. 31 for about 20 minutes, between Johnson Road and the U.S. 20 Bypass.
To avoid delays drivers are encouraged to avoid this stretch of U.S. 31 entirely on Thursday, September 5th.
