FULTON COUNTY, Ind. – Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Three Star Painting Inc. will begin a bridge deck sealing project on U.S. 31 over the Tippecanoe River on or after Monday, April 11.

There will be alternating lane closures on northbound and southbound U.S. 31 while work is occurring, with one lane open in each direction at all times. This preventative maintenance bridge project will be ongoing through late May. 

During this timeframe, Olson Rd will be closed at U.S. 31. Motorists should seek an alternate route. The official detour for this closure will follow C.R. 375 N, Old U.S. Hwy 31 and Monticello Rd. 

INDOT encourages drivers to allow extra time when driving through this area and follow traffic directions carefully. Motorists should slow down, exercise caution and drive distraction-free through all work zones.
