I-65 Ramp Closures Announced for Concrete Restoration

In Lake County, the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces several Interstate 65 ramp closures for concrete restoration projects. Construction is scheduled to begin on or after September 23rd with work expected to wrap up by mid-October. All work is weather-dependent and schedules are subject to change.
The closures, which are in the Gary, Hobart, Lake Station and Merrillville areas, include:
• Eastbound and westbound U.S. 30 ramps to northbound I-65
• Eastbound and westbound 61st Street to northbound I-65
• Northbound I-65 off-ramp to Ridge Road
Drivers needing to access I-65 or Ridge Road are advised they will need to seek another route. INDOT encourages motorists to consider worker safety by slowing down, using extra caution and driving distraction-free when traveling in and around all work zones.
