US 31 restrictions in South Bend continue through summer
INDOT is continuing US 31 lane restrictions as crews work to connect the lanes of the New US 31 to existing US 31 over the coming months.
From now through July, US 31 will be restricted to one lane in each direction between Kern Road and US 20. INDOT is working to alleviate any traffic delays and congestion by adjusting traffic signals in the area to facilitate north-south traffic flow.
Despite adjustments, traffic volume in the area may lead to back-ups on US 31 and on the US 20 Bypass exit ramp for traffic accessing southbound US 31.
Drivers are encouraged to find alternative routes to avoid delays.
Johnson Road to close at US 31 Monday, April 21
Crews plan to close Johnson Road at US 31 for new bridge construction starting Monday, April 21. Access to and from Johnson Road at US 31 will be closed permanently at this time.
