MIAMI COUNTY – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces that access to U.S. 31 will be restricted at the intersection of Blair Pike Road/ West Division Road in Miami County on or after Tuesday, May 15.

The work, which will strengthen the shoulders along U.S. 31 for an upcoming bridge rehabilitation project, is expected to last up to two weeks. Drivers will not be able to access U.S. 31 from Blair Pike/West Division roads, and drivers in U.S. 31 will not have access to turn onto Blair Pike/ Division road. The bridge project, between Blair Pike Road/West Division Road and U.S. 24, is scheduled to begin in mid- to late-June and will require the restriction of U.S. 31 down to one lane in each direction.

INDOT reminds drivers to use caution and consider worker safety when driving through any active work zone. Drivers should also be prepared for stopped traffic.

The contract was awarded to E&B Paving for $8.7 million and includes the asphalt resurfacing of U.S. 31 and additional bridge maintenance on U.S. 31 in Miami County.
