Road Construction Takes a Holiday

Road crews will take a break during the Independence Day holiday.

Officials with the Indiana Department of Transportation say road work will cease until the morning hours of Wednesday, July 5. Road restrictions will be removed in select areas to ease the flow of traffic during the holiday. Some closures and restrictions will remain on larger projects. Contractors will reposition barriers and barricades to accommodate the increase in traffic.

Traffic and road conditions plus construction information on state highways can be accessed online at or call 1-800-261-ROAD (7623).

Local police officers and state police troopers will be out in full force targeting impaired drivers. Sobriety checkpoints, roving patrols and saturation patrols are planned.
