The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announced the Restore I-94 initiative, which will modernize I-94 between the Illinois state line and the Michigan state line during 2017. Projects will include pavement upgrades, bridge rehabilitation, drainage improvements, and traffic and safety enhancements.
I-94 traffic volumes are among the highest in the country with a substantial concentration of heavy truck traffic. It is because of the extremely high volume and the resulting wear-and-tear that I-94 needs more modernization and preventive maintenance.
Construction will require periodic lane closures and drivers may experience delays as work progresses. However, INDOT is coordinating all projects across the approximately 45-mile corridor to minimize the impact to drivers as much as possible.
Steps INDOT Is Taking to Improve Safety/Mobility
What Can Drivers Do To Limit Impact
Drivers in Northwest Indiana can monitor road closures, road conditions, and traffic alerts at any time via the District’s social media channels:Facebook or Twitter. Or visit http://www.trafficwise.in.gov for INDOT’s TrafficWise Traveler Information Service.
