Faster U.S. 31 plan proposed

March 8, 2012

A plan to speed up construction on U.S. 31 in Hamilton County may actually slow down drivers. The “Hyperfix” proposal would cut construction time by three years and save the state an estimated $50 million. But all four lanes of a portion of U.S. 31 in Carmel would close during construction in areas from 126th Street to 136th Street. An informational meeting to discuss the project will take place at Carmel High School on March 29 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
