Dave O’Mara Contractor Inc. plans to begin work on U.S. 31 in Bartholomew and Johnson Counties next week as part of an $8.4 million asphalt resurfacing project from just south of I-65 near Taylorsville and S.R. 252 in Amity. The contract also includes resurfacing work in Franklin, which began late last month.

Starting Monday (June 15), crews will begin saw-cutting, followed by patching, milling and paving. The work will be completed under lane closures and is expected to be complete this fall.

Motorists should slow down, use extra caution and drive distraction-free through all work zones. All work is weather dependent.
