Starting today, motorists traveling to Westville and beyond on U.S. 421 will need to find a new route. INDOT is shutting down the intersection of 421 and State Road 2 through the end of October, with no traffic allowed to pass through in either direction.
Additionally, 421 between 2 and U.S. 6 will be one lane in each direction until the project is completed. Crews will remove old asphalt and resurface and completely restore U.S. 421, between State Road 2 and U.S. 6. They will also rehabilitate the concrete at the intersection of U.S. 421 and State Road 2.
INDOT advises state road detours must be along state-maintained roadways only. Drivers traveling north on U.S. 421 will be detoured west on U.S. 6, north on State Road 49, east on I-94 and back to U.S. 421. Drivers traveling south on U.S. 421 will be detoured west on I-94, south on State Road 49, east on U.S. 6 and back to U.S. 421.
Drivers traveling east on State Road 2 will be detoured south on State Road 39, west on U.S. 6, north on U.S. 421, west on U.S. 6 and back to State Road 2. Drivers traveling west on State Road 2 will be detoured east on U.S. 6, south on U.S. 421, east on U.S. 6, north on State Road 39 and back to State Road 2.
