Bridge work to cause lane, ramp closures on I-94

LAKE COUNTY, Ind. - Indiana Department of Transportation contractor Dunnet Bay Construction Company will begin bridge deck overlay preventative maintenance projects on I-94 near U.S. 41/Indianapolis Blvd and Kennedy Ave on or after Monday, April 15.

Work will begin at the I-94 bridges over U.S. 41/Indianapolis Blvd and over Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad just west of Kennedy Ave. There will also be future work at the eastbound I-94 to northbound State Road 912/Cline Ave ramp bridge. This work will be conducted in phases and will be ongoing through late August.  

During phase one, the right lane of I-94 eastbound will be closed between U.S. 41/Calumet Ave and Kennedy Ave. Traffic will be shifted to the left to maintain four travel lanes. Phase one will be in place through approximately mid-May.

The following ramps will be closed on or after Monday, April 15 through late June:

  • Eastbound I-94 to northbound Indianapolis Blvd
  • Northbound and southbound U.S. 41/Indianapolis Blvd to eastbound I-94
  • Eastbound I-94 to northbound and southbound Kennedy Ave
  • Northbound and southbound Kennedy Ave to westbound I-94

Motorists should be prepared for changing traffic patterns and delays during peak times. INDOT encourages drivers to allow extra time when driving through this area and follow traffic directions carefully. Motorists should slow down, exercise caution and drive distraction-free through all work zones.
