One road construction project on the Indiana Toll Road continues while another is scheduled to begin this week. Last week, the next phase of the Lake Station interchange project, which is the bridge over I-80/94, officially began and throughout the project, which is expected to continue through November, one-lane of traffic will be kept open to allow vehicles to enter the Toll Road from either direction of I-80/94. Restrictions will only apply to traffic on the Toll Road that seeks to exit to eastbound I-80/94. Patrons are no longer able to exit the Toll Road at Exit 21 and should detour at Exit 17.
Beginning this week, officials report all areas of the Toll Road will be impacted by pothole patching. An attempt will be made to schedule most mainline closures during the nighttime hours.
