INDOT will close the intersection at 116th and Pennsylvania streets for about 60 days beginning Sept. 16 at the earliest to construct a roundabout. The closure will not begin until the new 111th Street bridge above US-31 is open.
During the closure, drivers can use 106th Street, College Avenue and Old Meridian Street as detours.
INDOT has permanently removed access to and from US-31 from 103rd Street on Sept. 8, allowing traffic heading south to Meridian Street and I-465 south of 106th Street to become free-flowing. The traffic signal at the intersection has been removed, and 103rd Street is now a cul-de-sac on both sides of US-31.
Drivers can use the 111th Street bridge to cross over US-31 beginning in mid-September, and the 126th Street/Carmel Drive bridge is also open to two lanes in each direction.
Access to and from US-31 and St. Vincent Health/Heart Center will remain available via 106th Street.
