Chip Sealing to Close State Road 39

Road Closed SignThe Indiana Department of Transportation is chip sealing another section of highway in Starke County. Starting today, State Road 39 will be closed between State Road 10 and State Road 8. Work is due to wrap up Friday, weather permitting.

INDOT is also chip and fog sealing State Road 10 between 500 West and U.S. 421 this week.

Detours must use state-maintained roadways, so drivers will need to use U.S. 35 to get back to State Road 8 to connect with either State Road 39 or U.S. 421. Southbound drivers will need to take State Road 8 around to U.S. 35 to get back to State Road 10.

Drivers in Northwest Indiana can monitor road closures, road conditions, and traffic alerts at any time via the District’s social media channels: or Twitter @INDOTNorthwest. Or visit for INDOT’s TrafficWise Traveler Information Service.
