Sections of I-94 & I-65 shut down


News Release from INDOT:

LAKE COUNTY, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces the emergency closure of I-94, both eastbound and westbound, between the Illinois state line and the U.S. 421 exit (Michigan City). Also I-65 is closed, both northbound and southbound, between U.S. 12/20 (Gary) and mile marker 172 (Lafayette). These roadways are closed to all traffic due to severe winter weather that has made some areas and ramps impassable. There is no timeframe for when these roadways will reopen.


A full callout of INDOT plow crews remain on the roads, but conditions are so severe that crews cannot stay ahead of the storm.


ADDITIONAL ROAD WARNING: All other interstates, U.S. highways, and state routes in the INDOT Northwest District are extremely hazardous and most counties have declared red travel warnings advising emergency travel only. Heavy snow, blowing and drifting snow, and whiteout conditions should be expected on all roadways. This is a dangerous situation and all are advised to stay home until roadways can be safely cleared.


Drivers in Northwest Indiana can monitor road conditions and traffic alerts at any time via the District's social media channels: or Twitter @INDOTNorthwest. Or visit for INDOT's TrafficWise Traveler Information Service.
