161st Street at U.S. 31 to close Monday
Contractors for the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) are planning traffic changes along the construction work zone on U.S. 31 between 146th and 169th Streets.
- Beginning Wednesday, April 10 after 9 a.m., both directions of traffic on 151st Street will be shifted to the north side of the road. Left turns from eastbound 151st Street to northbound US 31 will be restricted.
- Beginning Wednesday April 10, crossing US 31 on 156th Street will be restricted. The intersection will become right-in, right-out access only from both directions of 156th Street.
- Beginning Monday, April 15, 161st Street will close between Oakridge Road and Union Street for construction of a new roundabout interchange. The official detour will be signed and will direct traffic north to the signalized 169th Street intersection. The closure is expected to last no more than 120 days.
The New U.S. 31 Hamilton County project will include new freeway exits at 146th Street, 151st Street and 161st Street. New ramps will connect 146th Street to the north with Greyhound Pass and 151st Street with a “split-diamond” interchange. A new freeway exit at 161st Street will have roundabouts controlling ramp and cross traffic. Local traffic on Union Street and 156th Street will pass under U.S. 31 with no on or off ramps.
