INDOT announced a road work moratorium for the Independence Day weekend beginning Friday afternoon, June 30 until the morning hours of Wednesday, July 5. Wherever possible, road restrictions will be removed to ease traffic flow for the influx of holiday drivers. Some closures and restrictions will remain on larger projects that cannot safely reopen to traffic. INDOT directs contractors to pull back barriers and barricades where possible to accommodate the anticipated increase in holiday travel. Here’s where you will see restrictions remaining over the holiday weekend: Sections of I-94 in LaPorte County are reduced to two lanes in each direction for rehabilitation from U.S. 421 (Exit 40) near Michigan City to the Michigan State line. Some U.S. 20/35 ramps are closed with posted detours. Sections of I-94 in Lake County are reduced to three lanes in each direction for maintenance of three bridges between the Illinois state line and S.R. 912/Cline Avenue (Exit 5). Drivers should anticipate lane shifts on I-65 from the Kankakee River bridge to U.S. 30 due to the I-65 widening project. I-65 periodic lane closures from U.S. 30 to I-94 for concrete rehabilitation. Barrier wall will remain to block off closed lanes.
