Two INDOT Road Projects Scheduled


Two road construction projects in the Kankakee Valley will hamper travel for a few days.

According to INDOT Northwest Media Relations Coordinator Matt Deitchley, U.S. 35 between Knox and Winamac will be closed for 10 to 20 days for a pipe replacement. Deitchley said the closure should begin at State Road 10 and go south. The project is expected to begin on Monday, April 14.

State Road 23 between Koontz Lake and Walkerton will be closed for 40 days for a culvert replacement. The closure was to begin Monday, April 14 but the utilities have not yet been located and that is a requirement before the project gets underway. Deitchley will release the start date of the project once that formality is done.
