Periodic brief closures April 4-8
Utility relocation and panel sign installation may cause delays
The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces restrictions coming to US 31, between Johnson Road and Ireland Road in South Bend.
Friday, April 4: Periodic 15-minute complete closures of US 31, between Johnson Road and the US 20 Bypass between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. AEP crews will be installing power lines across the roadway during these brief closures. All traffic will be stopped, both northbound and southbound, between this stretch for about 15 minutes at a time, approximately five times throughout the day. The closures are necessary to ensure driver safety as crews work across the roadway.
Monday and Tuesday, April 7-8: US 31 will be down to one lane in each direction, between Johnson Road and Ireland Road, so crews can remove the center median and install panel signs.
To avoid delays during all these restrictions drivers are encouraged to avoid US 31 between Johnson Road and Ireland Road in South Bend on April 4, 7, and 8.
