Final US 31 contracts under construction
INDOT has awarded all highway construction contracts to upgrade US 31 between South Bend and Plymouth. Construction to complete this important transportation project is underway and traffic is expected switched to the new lanes by the end of 2014.
The project upgrades and realigns US 31 from US 30 in Plymouth to the US 20 bypass in South Bend. Approximately 15 miles of the 20-mile corridor is being built on new terrain east of the existing route.
The goal of the project is to reduce congestion and improve safety and mobility along the route. This project is part of a larger initiative to upgrade the route to freeway standards from Indianapolis to South Bend.
