Plan Extra Time, Know Before You Go for Holiday Weekend Traffic
Saturday, May 25, 2019

Though the weather hasn't always felt like it, summer is right around the corner. Memorial Day weekend traditionally marks the ceremonial start to summer as travel season ramps up. Whether you're attending the Indianapolis 500, vacationing, visiting family and friends or just passing through, INDOT urges drivers to plan extra travel time, to stay informed on road conditions and to drive safely.

Where possible, highway maintenance activities and construction projects will halt work during the holiday weekend to increase mobility and safety.

Some restrictions and reduced speed limits will remain in place due to ongoing road construction, including two areas of I-69 in Northeast Indiana. In Allen County, lanes will remain closed for bridge work between mile markers 300 and 310. In Steuben County, lanes will be closed at mile marker 340 with lane shifts at mile 345.

Motorists can learn about highway work zones and other traffic alerts at indot.carsprogram.org, 1-800-261-ROAD (7623) or 511 from a mobile phone or by using the INDOT mobile app.
