The Indiana Department of Transportation announces lane closures for the U.S. 31 bridge over U.S. 30 beginning on or after Friday, July 30 through mid-October.

These restrictions are for an approach slab replacement and bridge deck overlay project. A bridge deck overlay is a protective treatment done to extend the life of a bridge deck. 

During phase one, the northbound and southbound right driving lanes will be closed. The passing lanes and all ramps will remain open. Work will flip to the left passing lanes during phase two. Motorists should be prepared for changing traffic patterns in the area.

INDOT urges drivers to stay alert near crews and follow traffic directions carefully. Motorists are encouraged to allow extra time when driving through this area and should slow down and drive distraction-free through all work zones.
