About the Project
The New US 31 Hamilton County project upgrades US 31 to freeway standards from I-465 at the Marion-Hamilton County line, through Carmel and Westfield to State Road 38. Upgrading the 13 miles of existing highway between I-465 and SR 38 to Federal freeway standards is, in terms of dollars, the largest and most aggressive road project ever attempted in Hamilton County.
The New US 31 Hamilton County project is intended to reduce congestion, improve safety and provide continuity of commerce and regional travel for a US highway that stretches from Michigan to Alabama. Work on three congested sections of US 31 has reduced travel time between Indianapolis and South Bend by about 30 minutes. Construction began in 2011 and, with the accelerated schedule, the entire corridor between I-465 and SR 38 is now substantially complete.
US 31 construction is substantially complete
Construction along US 31 in Hamilton County is substantially complete. Remaining work, such as some landscaping and clean-up will be performed through 2017 with as minimal impacts to traffic as possible.
