Traffic shift in place
Two lanes of northbound and southbound US 31 are currently shifted to share the northbound side of the highway between 151st and 169th streets. For the safety of motorists and workers during construction, left turns are restricted between 151st and 169th streets. However, left turns will be permitted at 151st and 169th streets. The work zone speed limit will be reduced to 40 mph.

Construction Zone Safety
Did you know that four of five people killed in construction zones are motorists? Driving safely in construction zones – like the one along US 31 in Hamilton County – requires undivided attention and patience.
To operate safely in a construction zone, motorists should:
- Be aware of changing conditions
- Pay attention to construction signage and flaggers
- Prepare for frequent stops
- Follow posted speed limits
- Stay in their lane
- Avoid distractions, especially mobile devices
- Remain calm
- Plan for delays
Driving aggressively in work zones can cost you in several ways. Indiana’s Work Zone Safety Law includes steep penalties for driving infractions in work zones. The minimum fee for speeding in a work zone is $300, and that fine increases if you receive more than one ticket in three years. Drivers who injure or kill a highway worker could face fines up to $10,000 and eight years in prison.
