Good weather is being named a factor in construction projects moving along smoothly in the region this summer. INDOT Spokesman Matt Deitchley says the two bridge rehabilitation projects on I-94 are on schedule to be done by the end of the year. Another major project running on schedule is the new Nine-Span Bridge project in Lake County, where Deitchley says the beams are already set and they anticipate doing some bridge deck pouring in the next week or two.
Deitchley says while it may seem like there is more construction in the Region than usual, there isn't, just more taking place in major thorough-fares, which is why INDOT continues to stress patience when traveling through a construction zone and reminds motorists to slow down.
