Deck overlay to restrict lanes on U.S. 31 near Columbus

BARTHOLOMEW CO. — Indiana Department of Transportation contractor RAM Construction Services plans to begin deck overlay work as early as Monday, June 14, on the U.S. 31 bridge over Clifty Creek in Bartholomew County.

The project is scheduled to take place in two phases, both of which will restrict traffic to one lane in each direction through mid-July, weather permitting.

  • On/after Monday, June 14: U.S. 31 southbound closed, one travel lane in each direction on the northbound side
  • Late June: U.S. 31 northbound closed, one travel lane in each direction on the southbound side 

Motorists are reminded to slow down, use extra caution, and drive distraction-free in and near all work zones. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change. C.R. 50 N. is expected to remain open during construction.
