Crews working on the new US 31 project will be closing down a stretch of Kern Rd. on South Bend’s south side this week.
The westbound lane of Kern Rd. from the existing US 31 to south St. Joseph Street will be closed starting Monday and will remain closed through Wednesday as workers relocate utilities there.
This closure will not affect those travelling on the eastbound lane of Kern in that area.
The Indiana Department of Transportation reminds drivers to use caution when driving near construction zones.
