Now open – The new southbound ramp between Greyhound Pass and 146th Street opened to traffic last week. Motorists can now access all southbound ramps on the west side of U.S. 31 connecting 151st Street, Greyhound Pass and 146th Street with the New U.S. 31. The northbound ramps are expected to open in late November.

U.S. 31 – Crews began restricting traffic on northbound U.S. 31 between 169th street and Ind. 32 on Nov. 3. Nighttime (9 p.m. to 6 a.m.) lane restrictions will continue in this area through mid-November.

Also along U.S. 31, INDOT crews have intermittent lane restrictions on northbound U.S. 31 between 191st and 203rd streets during daytime hours. The restrictions began Nov. 7 and are expected to last for approximately one week.

Smokey Row Road – On Nov. 4, crews began to restrict lanes during daytime hours on Smokey Row Road east of Pro Med Drive to continue utility relocation. While restrictions are in place, flaggers will direct traffic. These restrictions are expected to be complete by early December.

Spring Mill Road – Beginning next week, crews plan to restrict southbound Spring Mill Road near 111th Street during daytime hours to remove trees for utility relocation. While restrictions are in place, a flagger will direct traffic. These restrictions are expected to continue for approximately one week.

I-69 Exit 205 – Ind. 37 south of 126th Street opened to two lanes on Nov. 1 and permanent pavement markings were painted Nov. 2 and 3 on I-69 at the Exit 205 interchange. Some various restrictions can be expected near the interchange in the upcoming weeks as crews complete final items on the contract. A separate project is currently building additional lanes between 116th Street and I-465.
