Entry Description

Temporary Widening Begins on U.S. 31 Near S.R. 32

WESTFIELD, Ind. – Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) contractor Rieth-Riley Construction plans to begin tonight to temporarily widen the pavement on U.S. 31 near State Road 32.

Rieth-Riley will restrict the right lane of northbound U.S. 31 between 169th Street and 196th Street during the overnight operations, which are expected to continue—weather permitting—each night from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. through the end of October.

The $63 million contract is the final contract to upgrade U.S. 31 to freeway standards from I-465 to State Road 38—the largest and most aggressive road project ever implemented in Hamilton County. This contract spans nearly 4 miles and includes a new single-point urban interchange at State Road 32, a roundabout interchange at 191st Street, an overpass at 169th Street and an underpass at 181st Street.

Rieth-Riley is beginning off-road work and temporary pavement widening along this section of U.S. 31 before shifting southbound traffic to share the northbound side of the highway next spring. Two lanes of traffic will remain open in each direction.

The New U.S. 31 Hamilton County improvements are part of Major Moves projects to upgrade or bypass congested sections of U.S. 31 between Indianapolis and South Bend.  Three U.S. 31 corridors in Indiana are intended to reduce congestion, improve safety and provide continuity of commerce and regional travel for a U.S. highway that stretches from Michigan to Alabama.
