Right lane closed WB I-80/94 near Cline Avenue backing up all WB lanes as well as traffic from SB Cline Avenue
Daytime patching work will cause heavy, stop and go traffic westbound on the Borman (I-80/94) for the next couple of days. Matt Deitchley, Media Relations Director for INDOT's La Porte District says the patching work is part of a long term project, " but the majority of this work will be done at night time. This is something that is happening today, tomorrow and Wednesday." Deitchley says that the work requires that the right lane westbound I-80/94 be closed right now for the next three days for short term ramp work that has to be completed now.
The ramp work is causing a trickle down effect, backing up traffic southbound on Cline Avenue as well. Drivers coming from BP or the mills may want to take Kennedy Avenue or Calumet Avenue to I-80/94 as alternates. Chicago Avenue should be avoided as railroad crossing work through Friday evening has Chicago Avenue closed between Kennedy Avenue and Graselli St. Traffic westbound on I-80/94 may want to consider the Indiana Toll Road past Cline Avenue as an alternate as well.
