Bridge replacement to close U.S. 31 in Scott County

SCOTT COUNTY – Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Louisville Paving plans to close U.S. 31 on or after Monday, July 18, to complete a bridge replacement project over Pigeon Roost Creek in Scott County.

The bridge is located between S.R. 356 and the Clark County line. Traffic will be detoured along S.R. 56, I-65, and S.R. 160. The $1.2 million contract was awarded to Louisville Paving in February 2021 and is expected to be complete by late fall.

INDOT reminds drivers to slow down, avoid distractions, and stay vigilant of workers and equipment when traveling through active construction zones. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
