U.S. 31 paving work to begin in Johnson County

JOHNSON COUNTY — Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Dave O’Mara Contractor Inc. plans to begin work on or after Tuesday to patch, mill and repave a section of U.S. 31 in Johnson County.

Contractors will be working from just north of State Road 252 to just south of State Road 144 near the bridge over Young’s Creek in Franklin. Drivers should expect lane closures and flagging throughout the project.

The $6.2 million contract was awarded to Dave O’Mara in March and is expected to be complete later this summer.
