Indiana is not only building a new US 31 between South Bend and Plymouth, but also rebuilding a section of Old 31.

It is a 1.1-mile stretch north of Kern Road that will be placed in the control of South Bend when the new highway opens.

City officials felt the old highway should be demolished and downsized before the switch took place.

When the switch takes place, the state will also give the city about a half million dollars’ worth of credits that can be used to cover the city’s matching obligations when it takes part in federally funded road projects.
