INDOT announced that Indianapolis Boulevard (U.S. 12/20) has reopened in East Chicago from Columbus Avenue through the lift bridge over Lake George Canal. This will remain an active work zone as crews work to finish the road portion of the project just south of the bridge. Traffic will be maintained one lane in each direction through the corridor, except when workers are present, when flagging operations could be in place, directing one lane of traffic through the work zone. Motorists could experience congestion and delays, particularly during work hours, so it’s advisable to avoid the area if at all possible.
