U.S. 31 and State Road 11 intersections to add traffic signals

INDOT says that contractors are continuing their work to upgrade traffic signals on U.S. 31 and State Road 11 in Bartholomew County.

Underground boring started in January at U.S. 31 and Lowell Road and that work continues at State Road 11 and Southern Crossing, also known as County Road 450S. You won’t see many traffic effects immediately, but paving operations will start next month and new signals will be installed later this spring. That work will include lane closures and flaggers on scene.

The Lowell Road intersection now has a two-way stop that will become a four-way signal. The Southern Crossing intersection has four-way stop signs that will be signalized. Both projects are expected to be finished by mid-June.

INDOT says that signals will help improve safety and reduce congestion at those intersections. Morphey Construction is doing the work on the more than half a million dollar modernization contract.

INDOT urges you to slow down, to use extra caution, and to drive distraction-free in and near work zones.
