151st Street Open Today, Greyhound Pass Scheduled to Close Saturday
WESTFIELD, Ind. – Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) contractors have opened 151st Street west of U.S. 31 today.
Rieth-Riley Construction, the state’s contractor for the $58 million project to upgrade U.S. 31 to freeway standards between 146th and 169th streets, closed 151st Street west of U.S. 31 on May 20th. Access from U.S. 31 to the east entrance of Target was maintained during the closure, but traffic will now use the west entrance to access Target as work continues on the ramps connecting southbound U.S. 31 and 151st Street.
With the opening of 151st Street, Rieth-Riley plans to close Greyhound Pass for approximately 30 days beginning Saturday, July 20. The official signed detour will route eastbound traffic south on Western Way to 146th Street and will route westbound traffic north on U.S. 31 to 151st Street.
The closure of Greyhound Pass will allow for construction of the “split diamond” ramp system with U.S. 31 that will connect Greyhound Pass to 151st and 146th streets.
