Before the Interstate era, US 31 was a major north-south highway. Interstate 65 supplants US 31 and either 31W or 31E as a through route between Indianapolis and Mobile. South of Indianapolis, all segments of US 31 not coinciding with Interstate 65 have been reduced to roads largely of local use. Interstate 196 now carries the route of US 31 between Holland, Michigan and St. Joseph, Michigan. All of US 31 between Ludington, Michigan and Indianapolis, Indiana is divided highway; some of it is freeway, including a bypass of South Bend, Indiana; the segment between South Bend and Indianapolis is scheduled for upgrade or replacement with Interstate-standard freeway. Environmental impact studies have shown that the 5th phase of the then-to-be-constructed freeway segment between Napier Avenue (near Benton Harbor, MI) and I-196 (or BL I-94 going into Benton Harbor) may not be completed until 2015.
