An Indiana Department of Transportation contractor will have overnight lane closures on I-65 between State Road 2 and State Road 10 in Lake County beginning on or after Monday, April 1.

The right driving lane will be closed during the overnight hours of approximately 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., starting first on the southbound side and then transitioning to the northbound side after work southbound is complete. Work will include shoulder strengthening and widening in advance of three bridge replacement projects along this stretch of I-65 and will be ongoing through early July.

INDOT urges drivers to stay alert near crews and be prepared to wait for the temporary traffic signal.

INDOT says motorists are encouraged to allow extra time when driving through this area and should slow down and drive distraction-free through all work zones.
