Drivers can expect possible backups and delays traveling both directions of I-65 in the Gary corridor.  INDOT is reporting that the right lane of both northbound and southbound I-65 is restricted near Ridge Road for daytime road work.  INDOT traffic cam (photo above) is showing the right lane restriction on the northbound side close to 53rd Avenue with traffic backing up from before 61st Avenue.

(INDOT traffic cam view shows traffic backing up southbound I-65 due to the right lane being restricted near 45th Avenue for daytime road work)


The southbound right lane I-65 is closed near 45th Avenue as seen in the above photo.  Drivers should expect delays both directions I-65 especially southbound I-65 coming from the Borman ( I-80/94) with traffic backing onto the right lanes eastbound 80/94. 
Traffic tipsters are reporting bigger backups perhaps due to more drivers on area roads who are getting a head start on the holiday or simply expediting their travel plans due to the lake effect snow being predicted to begin later Tuesday evening into Wednesday.
