The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) has announced numerous restrictions for traffic on both U.S. 31 and the U.S. 20 Bypass near the Michigan Street exit beginning Tuesday, September 17th through Tuesday, September 24th.  There will also be 20 minute complete closures of U.S. 31, just south of the U.S. 20 Bypass, on Thursday, September 19th and Friday, September 20th. All restrictions are due to crews setting bridge beams for the new Jackson Road Bridge, spanning over U.S. 31, just south of the Bypass.

To avoid delays drivers are encouraged to avoid this stretch of U.S. 31 entirely on Thursday and Friday, September 19-20.
