U.S. 31 southbound reconstruction to start next week
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. - Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Reith-Riley will close the ramps at U.S. 31 southbound and Cleveland/Brick Rd beginning Wednesday, March 10.
These ramp closures mark the beginning of the project to reconstruct the southbound lanes of U.S. 31 between the Michigan State Line and Indiana Toll Road, similar to work done to the northbound lanes in 2020.
When the southbound lanes close, the northbound lanes will be converted into two-way traffic.
The official detour for the ramp closure will be to continue south on U.S. 31, exit at U.S. 20, and then take U.S. 20 northbound back to Cleveland/Brick Rd.
Motorists can monitor road closures announced by the department here.
