Wabash St. will be closed between 11th St and 8th St until June 21st to finish a street improvement project in Michigan City. Avoid the area during the project and expect delays during construction.

INDOT announced the closure of the westbound I-94 ramp to eastbound U.S. 20/35 (exit 40A) running through the middle of September. Crews will also restrict traffic to two lanes in each direction, between mile marker 38 and mile marker 41. These closures are necessary so crews can resurface and restore the I-94 bridges that run over U.S. 20/35 and Trail Creek. During the closure, drivers traveling westbound on I-94 wishing to exit east on U.S. 20/35 will be detoured via the westbound U.S. 20/35 Dog Leg Ramp to the U.S. 212 interchange, where they will follow the ramps to gain access to eastbound U.S. 20/35.

INDOT is warning drivers of temporary lane closures on SR 39 between CR 300 N and W. Severs Road, through the middle of June. NIPSCO crews will close one north and one southbound lane for utility work. This is a NIPSCO project, but should be treated as any INDOT restriction. Drivers should be prepared to slow down in the work zone and stay alert to the shifting traffic patterns.

New traffic patterns within the Uptown Arts District are in effect. Pine Street and Washington Street will convert from one-way traffic to two-way traffic between 11th Street and 2nd Street. Likewise, 9th Street will convert to two-way traffic from Wabash Street to Pine Street. Lastly, Franklin Street between 2nd Street and Washington Park Bridge will be reconfigured for two-way traffic.

Ramps at the I-94 interchange (Exit 34B Ramp) of U.S. 421 (which includes both U.S. 421 Ramps) will be temporarily closed through the end of June while crews are resurfacing the ramps and adding upgrades to the entire interchange. The work schedule is subject to change in the event of bad weather. Detours will be posted.

In the Porter/Burns Harbor area, expect delays on US 20 between Beam and Wagner with roadwork set up in both directions.

On I-94 in both directions between the Indiana Toll Road and Rt 49 expect delays during an ongoing road construction project.

In Valparaiso INDOT is alerting drivers of potential delays on State Road 49, between mile marker 30 and mile marker 31, at the bridge over State Road 2 in Valparaiso. Crews will restrict traffic to one lane as they rehabilitate both sides of the bridge, through the middle of July. Drivers should be prepared for slower than normal traffic near and at the work zone and expect potential delays.

INDOT has set up lane closures on U.S. 20 between, SR 249 and SR 149 now through the end of June. These lane closures are necessary for crews to mill and resurface U.S. 20 in that area. During the project, one eastbound lane and one westbound lane will remain open to traffic in both directions. Motorists should be prepared to slow down and stay alert to the shifting traffic pattern

There’s roadwork on the Indiana Toll Road Work for the next two years which will affect 70 miles of roadways including 53 bridges from Lake Station to Elkhart. ****** Known as the 80/90 PUSH (Pavement Upgrade for a Superior Highway) Project, the two-year reconstruction project will start at Milepost 20 in Lake Station through Milepost 30 near SR 49/Calumet Avenue. Work zones will also occur from Milepost 43 to Milepost 51 in the LaPorte area. The full project involves the rehabilitation of 73 miles of pavement, including shoulders and ramps as needed; the rehabilitation of 53 bridges; and the installation of a fiber optic cable to support Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). The majority of the work will be completed one lane at a time, allowing the other lane to remain open to traffic to minimize traffic disruptions and travel delays.******************

La Porte/South Bend Area watch for an INDOT closure on the east and westbound driving lane of I-94, between the U.S. 20/35 Interchange and mile marker 41. This project will be going through the end of October. *************Crews will rehabilitate the I-94 bridge at that location that runs over the NICTD Railroad. During the project, traffic will be reduced to two lanes on both the east and westbound side of I-94. Drivers should be prepared to slow down at this location and be alert to shifting traffic patterns.

More Roadwork with Phase Two of the U.S. 31/20 Bypass bridge rehabilitation project near the South Bend Airport. This project closes off two ramps and lanes near the U.S. 31/20 Bypass as crews rehabilitate the Bypass bridge over U.S. 20. Ramp closures will reopen by the middle of October. Traffic will be detoured around the ramp closures by utilizing the interchanges at the U.S. 31/20 Bypass and Nimtz Road and the U.S. 31/20 Bypass and State Road 2.

INDOT has set up lane closures on U.S. 30, between CR 300 E and U.S. 35, near Hamlet through the middle of September. Crews will close one eastbound and one westbound lane at a time, restricting drivers to one lane in both directions. This closure is necessary so crews can resurface and restore the surface of the U.S. 35 bridge over Robbins Ditch.
