New lane restrictions and traffic shifting for U.S. 31 construction
106th Street traffic shift begins on or after Monday, Aug. 24
To accelerate construction on the US 31/106th Street interchange, crews plan to shift traffic on 106th Street on or after Monday, Aug. 24 (overnight). This shift will occur about one month ahead of schedule.
Traffic on 106th Street will be shifted to the south side of the road so crews can construct the north side of the new roundabout interchange. Following this shift, all turning movements will remain open, and traffic on 106th Street will be reduced to one lane in each direction (combined through and left-turning lanes), plus right-turn lanes to northbound and southbound US 31.
Various lane restrictions in Carmel, Aug. 22-26
Between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. tomorrow, Aug. 22, crews plan to restrict the left lane of northbound US 31 from just south of 96th Street to 103rd Street. This lane restriction will resume on Monday, Aug. 24, and continue daily through Aug. 26 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
On Monday, Aug. 24, motorists should expect various lane restrictions on northbound and southbound US 31 near 136th Street and 131st/Main Street. These lane restrictions will occur between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
103rd Street to close permanently on or after September 6
Beginning on or after September 6, crews plan to permanently remove access to/from US 31 at 103rd Street. When the traffic signal at US 31/103rd Street is removed, access from southbound US 31 to the eastbound and westbound I-465 ramps will become free-flowing from south of 106th Street.
As part of the final configuration of US 31, 103rd Street will become a cul-de-sac on either side of US 31, and nearby access to/from US 31 will remain available via I-465, 106th Street and 116th Street. The 103rd Street closure will not begin until after the City of Carmel opens 106th Street at Illinois Street (expected in early September).
Access to/from US 31 and St. Vincent Health/Heart Center will remain available via 106th Street. Click here for a map of suggested routes to St. Vincent Health/Heart Center from northbound and southbound US 31 following the 103rd Street closure. (See map below)
116th & Pennsylvania streets closure begins in September
Starting in mid to late September, INDOT plans to close the 116th/Pennsylvania streets intersection for approximately 60 days to construct a roundabout. During this closure, the signed detour route will include 106th Street, College Avenue and Old Meridian Street. (See map below)
