The U.S. 31 project going through Hamilton County is moving along on schedule.

According to Westfield Mayor Andy Cook, the leg that runs through his community should be completed by the end of 2015.

The best perk of the new project is that it removes the uncertainty that has long surrounded it.

"The real change for us was eliminating the uncertainty that has hung over the 31 corridor for 21 years," Cook said. "Are they going to improve this section? What is it going to be? And as long as uncertainty hangs over the project, no development occurs.

Cook held a special thank you lunch Wednesday for INDOT employees working on the project.
