U.S. 30 to Close for Railroad Crossing Repairs

A section of U.S. 30 in LaPorte County will be closed next week in order to upgrade the railroad crossing in Hanna. The work is expected to take five days, weather permitting. It’s due to start Monday and finish up on Friday. Plans call for adding LED lights, new gates and gate arms to the crossing. INDOT’s marked detour will take eastbound U.S. 30 drivers north on U.S. 421, east on U.S. 6 and south on State Road 39 to get around the closure. Westbound motorists will go north on 39, west on 6 and south on 421. Local roads will be open, but INDOT can only use highways to detour traffic.
