Construction ends, ramps opening


COM-US 31 Construction

Contractors for INDOT have begun the final work at 151st Street east of U.S. 31 that will culminate in the opening of new northbound “split diamond” interchange ramp segments.

Rieth-Riley Construction milled and paved 151st Street last week. Pavement markings follow paving and traffic on Greyhound Pass and 151st Street is planned to shift this week to a configuration allowing the northbound ramp connector between two roadways to open to traffic.

Contractors plan to shift northbound U.S. 31 traffic to new pavement on the east side of the highway just south of 161st Street as early as this week. Also expected before Thanksgiving, the northbound U.S. 31 exit ramp to 146th Street will split to open access to Greyhound Pass and 151st Street. Access will remain open to northbound U.S. 31 from Greyhound Pass east of U.S. 31. Construction is expected to continue through the winter on the northbound U.S. 31 entrance ramp from 151st Street.
