    Close to 53,000 fans filled Memorial Stadium for the first game of the 2017 IU football season.

The Indiana Department of Transportation says a new seven-day-a-week construction schedule along State Road 37 will cause lane restrictions and significant delays through the beginning of December.

The construction along SR-37 to build I-69 Section 5 between Bloomington and Martinsville has been delayed several times over the past two years.

INDOT and Indiana University officials are urging people headed into town for the football game on Saturday to take an alternate route.

An INDOT statement says IU Athletics staff members will drive the suggested alternate routes throughout the season to get up-to-date traffic information for fans.

Saturday’s game against Georgia Southern is set for a 3:30 p.m. kickoff.

Alternate Routes

Here are three ways to avoid the worst section of SR-37 construction traffic:
