Bridge work starting on U.S. 31 between Uniontown and Seymour


On or after Wednesday, the U.S. 31 overpass over Interstate 65 between Uniontown and Crothersville will close for 120 days (through mid-July) for superstructure replacement.

The overpass is located approximately 4 miles north of State Road 250.

The official detour for the closure will follow U.S. 31 to U.S. 50 to I-65 at Exit 36 (Crothersville). Shoulder closures and lane restrictions on I-65 will be necessary during bridge deck demolition and beam setting operations.

Also beginning on or after Wednesday, the U.S. 31 bridge over Mutton Creek Ditch will be restricted to one lane with a temporary traffic signal for application of a bridge deck overlay. The temporary signal will remain in place for 150 days (through mid-August). The bridge is located about 1 mile north of I-65 between Uniontown and Seymour.

Indiana Department of Transportation contractor E and B Paving Inc. will do the work, which is part of a mutlimillion-dollar bridge rehabilitation project along U.S. 31 in Jackson County. Crews completed work between Crothersville and Uniontown last year.

Motorists should watch for slowed or stopped traffic, use extra caution and drive distraction-free through all work zones.

The contract completion date for the entire project is Sept. 30. All work is weather dependent.
