A road work moratorium is now in place through early Tuesday morning according to the Indiana Department of Transportation for the Labor Day holiday weekend. Spokesperson Matt Deitchley says there are some places where the moratorium cannot be lifted for the safety of drivers, like the lane restrictions on I-94 for bridge work in Porter County, and some other larger projects across their district.
Deitchley says while some construction zones may have cones and other equipment pushed off to the side, construction zone speed limits are still in place for your safety.
INDOT reports starting Tuesday, lane closures will begin on U-S 6/State Road 52/Ripley Street, between I80/94 and just south of Central Avenue in Lake County, through mid-October, for patching and repairing the roadway.
