Back To Front Page


The Indiana Department of Transportation is announcing lane and ramp closures next week for patching work on I-80/94 and Ind. 912 next week.

The closures will be in effect from Monday, Aug. 18, through Wednesday, Aug. 26, weather permitting.

The right lane and ramp lane of I-80/94 will be closed for full-depth patching between mile markers 14 and 16 at the Ind. 51 interchange. Three lanes will be shifted to the left, utilizing the shoulder and 11-foot wide lanes. The off-ramp from eastbound I-80/94 to northbound Ind. 51 and the on-ramp from southbound Ind. 51 to eastbound I-80/94 will both be closed. A barrier wall will be installed for work and traffic safety during this time.

Drivers should seek alternate routes. The official detour for southbound Ind. 51 to eastbound I-80/94 will follow Ind. 51 to U.S. Highway 6, and Ind. 49. The official detour for eastbound I-80/94 to northbound Ind. 51 will follow I-80/94, Ind. 249, and U.S. Highway 20.

The ramp from eastbound I-80/94 to southbound Ind. 912 will be reduced to one lane for patching as well. Traffic will still be able to reach north- and southbound Ind. 912 through the off-ramp.
