SOUTH BEND -

We have a traffic alert for you.

Starting Monday, US 31 will be down to one lane in each direction on the south side of South Bend between the US 20 Bypass and Kern Road.

That restriction will be in place through most of the summer.

Also starting Monday, Johnson Road will be permanently closed at US 31 between Main Street and St. Joseph Street. Crews will be working on building a new Johnson Road Bridge to allow traffic to travel over the new highway.

However, the Jackson Street Bridge will open on Monday.
