[INDOT] I-65 Reopens in NW Ind., NB Lanes Closed from Edinburgh to Whiteland

Entry Description

I-65 Reopens in NW Ind., NB Lanes Closed from Edinburgh to Whiteland

 

INDIANAPOLIS – I-65 northbound is closed between U.S. 31 in Edinburgh (Exit 76) and Whiteland (Exit 95) due to icy conditions and will remain closed for at least the next few hours. The southbound lanes remain open.

 

Indiana Department of Transportation and Indiana State Police officials will make a determination if the road can be reopened later this afternoon or remain closed. If the decision is made to reopen later today, updated information will be provided.

 

Both directions of I-65 were reopened at 10 a.m. today between U.S. 30 in Merrillville and Lafayette, but hard-pack snow should be expected, causing dangerously icy conditions. Virtually all counties in Central and Northern Indiana have declared a “Watch” or “Warning”, limiting travel to essential or emergency purposes, respectively.

 

Forecasted warmer temperatures on Wednesday are expected to allow salt and other anti-icing chemicals to work more effectively to melt the ice and snow. In the meantime, area roads should be considered hazardous and drivers are urged to use extreme caution, take it slow, and travel at their own risk.

 

Drivers may monitor road closures and conditions by visiting http://indot.carsprogram.org or by following INDOT’s Facebook and Twitter pages at www.in.gov/indot/3074.htm.
