Temporary signals to control traffic on U.S. 31 for bridge fix

Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Force Construction Co. Inc. plans to begin work on or after Monday on a $2.4 million bridge rehabilitation project on U.S. 31 in Jackson County.

The project includes deck overlays on two bridges located approximately 4 miles south of Seymour — one over Vernon Fork Muscatatuck River and the other over a drainage ditch near Interstate 65.

Construction will occur in two phases for each bridge. Traffic will be restricted to one lane with temporary signals during construction. A 45 mph speed limit also will be in place.

Work will occur on the bridges separately, starting with the bridge over the Muscatatuck River through early August. Both bridges are expected to be complete by Oct. 31. The contract was awarded to Force in August 2021 for a total of $2,418,040.21.

All work is weather-dependent, and schedules are subject to change.
