US 31 restrictions in South Bend continue through summer

INDOT is continuing US 31 lane restrictions as crews work to connect the lanes of the New US 31 to existing US 31 over the coming months.

From now through July, US 31 will be restricted to one lane in each direction between Kern Road and US 20. INDOT is working to alleviate any traffic delays and congestion by adjusting traffic signals in the area to facilitate north-south traffic flow.

Despite adjustments, traffic volume in the area may lead to back-ups on US 31 and on the US 20 Bypass exit ramp for traffic accessing southbound US 31.

Drivers are encouraged to find alternative routes to avoid delays.

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.
