Work Resumes Monday on U.S. 31 Resurfacing in Bartholomew County

(BARTHOLOMEW CO.) – Milestone Contractors will resume work on a $5.2 million asphalt resurface project on U.S. 31 in Bartholomew County on or after Monday, March 30, weather permitting. 

The resurface will take place from Washington Street in Columbus to just south of I-65 in Taylorsville. Crews will begin work at C.R. 400 N., where a turn lane will be added. The contractor is expected to start milling the following week, then paving. Patching was completed last fall.

Motorists should plan ahead and allow extra time when traveling due to daytime lane closures along the route. Drivers are urged to use extra caution in and near all work zones. 

The contract completion date is July 1, 2020. All work is weather dependent.
