LaPorte County road closures

Posted:

INDOT has announced the following road closures due to flooding in LaPorte County:

  • U.S. 20/35 under the State Road 212 overpass in LaPorte County
  • State Road 2 at State Road 39 in LaPorte, LaPorte County

Motorists in these areas should seek an alternate route.  INDOT crews and ISP are on hand to redirect traffic around the closures. 

When encountering a flooded roadway, INDOT urges drivers to remember "Turn around, don't drown." According to the National Weather Service, most flooding deaths occur in automobiles. Six inches of standing water is enough to cause passenger cars to stall and a foot of water will float many vehicles.  More information will be announced as available.
