The northbound lanes of U.S. 31 are closing today from Indiana 931 to Indiana 18, while road crews complete a bridge project.

The Indiana Department of Transportation says it will be diverting traffic to the southbound lanes of U.S. 31 using recently constructed crossover lanes. All traffic will use the southbound lanes while work is being done in the area of the northbound lanes.

Although the northbound lanes will be fully shut down, traffic will be able to move in one lane in both directions in the southbound lanes.

During the lane closures, crews will be repaving, patching and constructing a new bridge over Deer Creek.

The northbound lanes will remain closed until the middle of August. Once the northbound work is completed, the southbound lanes will be closed and traffic will be diverted to northbound lanes through the end of October.
