The US 31 Kokomo project is a 13 mile bypass of the current congested divided highway bypass which has 15 traffic signals in Kokomo. The new highway will be built to Interstate standards, and the existing US 31 will become SR 931. Interchanges on the new US 31 will be at SR 26, Boulevard/CR 100S, SR 22/US 35 (SB), Touby Pike, US 35 (NB)/CR 400N in addition to where the new road meets the old at the north and south ends. Currently, approximately eight miles are under construction with another five miles of contracts scheduled to be let in August and September of 2011. The contract for the final mile or so at the north end is scheduled to be let in Spring of 2012. The entire bypass is scheduled to be opened to traffic in late 2013.
