INDOT: State Road 331 complete closure, Mishawaka to Bremen

INDOT announced a complete closure will happen to State Road 331 from Mishawaka to Bremen from July to September.

The Indiana Department of Transportation says the State Road 331 will be completely closed between the U.S. 20 Bypass in Mishawaka and U.S. 6 in Bremen beginning Monday, July 18th through Thursday, September 1st.

INDOT says crews will remove old asphalt, patch and repair areas of the road and resurface 11.5 miles of State Road 331 to completely restore the road between Mishawaka and Bremen.

Drivers travelling south on State Road 331 will be detoured west on U.S. 20, south on U.S. 31, east on U.S. 6 and back to State Road 331.

Drivers travelling north on State Road 331 will be detoured west on U.S. 6, north on U.S. 31, east on U.S. 20, and back to State Road 331.

This is what some local drivers had to say about the closures:

“I really don’t like it. It’s going to be hard, because I have family. I babysit my niece and nephew in South Bend, so I travel it all the time," said Elizabeth Rectenwal.

“It’s an inconvenience definitely. I think going up to South Bend, Mishawaka…we do that usually to shop on the weekends, so it’s definitely going to be an inconvenience, but gotta do what you gotta do. Go around the long way,” said Dan Wesner.

“It’s a little longer drive. I mean so it already takes me about 45 minutes now, so it’ll take me about 55,” said William Screes.

Drivers in Northwest Indiana can monitor road closures, road conditions, and traffic alerts at any time via the district’s Facebook page or by visiting this link.
