US 30 to be Closed Overnight for Emergency Repairs

Share this post

Traffic-Alert
The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces the closure of U.S. 30, between I-65 and U.S. 41 tonight, beginning at 10 p.m. The estimated reopening time is 10 a.m. Thursday, July 3rd. The severe weather that swept through Northwest Indiana Monday night resulted in downed power lines on U.S. 30 that permanently damaged multiple traffic signals along this stretch of U.S. 30. The overnight closure is necessary as NIPSCO repairs the downed power lines, and INDOT replaces all traffic signals.
Indiana State Police will assist in closing U.S. 30, between U.S. 41 and I-65 at 10 p.m. tonight. It’s possible U.S. 30 will open to traffic, with lane restrictions, prior to 10 a.m. Thursday. But, these major emergency repairs could result in the complete closure of U.S. 30 to remain in place until 10 a.m. Thursday, or later if problems arise.
Drivers are strongly encouraged to avoid this area until all lanes of U.S. 30 are open to traffic. INDOT Northwest will keep drivers updated as new information is available via the District’s social media channels: www.Facebook.com/INDOTNorthwest or Twitter @INDOTNorthwest.
The official detour will take westbound U.S. 30 drivers around the closure by travelling north on I-65, west on I-80/94, south on U.S. 41, and back to U.S. 30. Eastbound U.S. 30 drivers will be detoured north on U.S. 41, east on I-80/94, south on I-65, and back to U.S. 30.
Drivers in Northwest Indiana can monitor road closures, road conditions, and traffic alerts at any time via the District’s social media channels: www.Facebook.com/INDOTNorthwest or Twitter @INDOTNorthwest. Or visit http://www.trafficwise.in.gov for INDOT’s TrafficWise Traveler Information Service
