LAKE COUNTY, Ind. – An Indiana Department of Transportation contractor will move to phase two of bridge deck overlay preventative maintenance work on I-94 eastbound near U.S. 41/Indianapolis Boulevard and Kennedy Avenue on or after Monday, May 13.

INDOT says motorists should be prepared for overnight lane closures to install the new traffic configuration. Eastbound traffic will then be in phase two through mid-June, where the work zone will split traffic with one travel lane to the left of the work zone on the inside shoulder and three lanes of traffic on the right of the work zone.

The following ramps are closed and will remain closed through late June:

  • Eastbound I-94 to northbound Indianapolis Blvd
  • Northbound and southbound U.S. 41/Indianapolis Blvd to eastbound I-94
  • Eastbound I-94 to northbound and southbound Kennedy Ave
  • Northbound and southbound Kennedy Ave to westbound I-94

Bridge deck overlay work is occurring on the I-94 bridges over U.S. 41/Indianapolis Boulevard and over Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad just west of Kennedy Avenue. There will also be future work at the eastbound I-94 to northbound State Road 912/Cline Avenue ramp bridge. These projects will be conducted in phases and will be ongoing through late August.

INDOT says motorists should be prepared for changing traffic patterns and delays during peak times. INDOT encourages drivers to allow extra time when driving through this area and follow traffic directions carefully.
