A ribbon cutting is set for next week to open a new $155 million section of U.S. 31 in Howard County. The long-awaited 13-mile bypass around Kokomo includes six new interchanges and is an alternative to old U.S. 31, which has 15 intersections and traffic signals. Governor Mike Pence, Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight and Indiana Department of Transportation officials are scheduled to attend the ribbon cutting.
