INDOT is warning drivers to obey ‘Road Closed’ signs and barricades after witnessing numerous motorists driving around closure warnings on roadways that have been closed due to flooding. If you see a ‘Road Closed’ sign, it is there for a reason. Driving around signage and barricades, even if you’re simply following another driver who bypassed the warning, puts you at risk for injury, puts the road at risk for potential further damage and could land you a citation from law enforcement. Current INDOT Northwest Closures Due to High Water/Damage Assessment include: Starke/LaPorte County – SR 8, between CR 600W and CR 400W and SR 39, between US 30 and SR 10.
