Road construction crews have began the Johnson Road resurfacing project. The project will be completed in two phases. Phase 1 will be from US Highway 35 to CR 300 North. Phase 2 will be from CR 300 North to the area of US Highway 20. In the active construction zones, Johnson Road will be limited to one lane of travel. Motorists who must utilize Johnson Road should expect slowed traffic, traffic backups and large equipment being operated. LaPorte County Sheriff’s Office stated “If traveling along Johnson Road during this project, please adhere to the additional construction zone signage, maintain a safe traveling distance between other vehicles, limit the distractions within your vehicle and slow down!” If possible, motorists are being encouraged to avoid Johnson Road during the project and to seek alternate routes of travel. Weather permitting, the entire project is expected to be completed by July 4th.
