New U.S. 31 Interchange Planned at S.R. 28
Improvements to serve Chrysler facility in Tipton Co.

TIPTON COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) today announced plans to build a new U.S. 31 interchange at State Road 28 near the future Chrysler Tipton Transmission Plant.

“We will make Indiana the state that works by supporting economic development through infrastructure improvements,” Governor Pence said. “The new U.S. 31 and S.R. 28 exit will accommodate increased commuter and truck traffic while advancing ongoing efforts to remove stoplights on the highway between Indianapolis and South Bend.”

In late February, Governor Pence and Chrysler Group executives announced plans to invest $162 million in the former Getrag facility at the northeast corner of U.S. 31 and S.R. 28 in Tipton County. The site will assemble nine-speed transmissions for Dodge and Jeep models, creating up to 850 new positions. The nearly 800,000-square-foot site is scheduled to be operational by the end of 2014.

The Indiana Department of Transportation plans to begin construction of the new interchange in 2015 at an estimated cost of $17 million.

“This news portends further growth for this critical economic development area. Our residents will be connected to Hamilton and Howard Counties in a very meaningful and constructive way,” said Don Havens, Mayor of Tipton.

Indiana is currently upgrading and bypassing congested sections of U.S. 31 near Kokomo, South Bend and Indianapolis. When completed, the projects are expected to remove 32 stoplights from the route, cutting a half hour off travel time.
