MARSHALL COUNTY, Ind.  -- The Indiana Department of Transportation announced Monday afternoon that contractor Phend & Brown Ind. will have traffic delays on U.S. 31 to set beams for the new bridge over Elkhart Western Railroad between 13th Road and 14th Road.

"Delays will begin on Monday, March 4 when cranes are moved in and set up in the work zone. This will require six semi loads, which will cause delays of up to 10 to 15 minutes at a time," INDOT said. "On Wednesday, March 6, traffic will be stopped for up to 30 minutes at a time while six beams are set. This work will begin after 8 a.m. ET."
