State Road 10 west of North Judson will be closed this week for chip sealing, weather permitting. INDOT crews will begin chip and fog sealing operations today and conclude on Friday, Aug. 26th. The work is done to preserve the road surface. Liquid asphalt emulsion is distributed on the roadway and covered with crushed stone. Excess chips are swept from the roadway after the asphalt cures.
INDOT’s marked detour uses State Road 39, State Road 8 and U.S. 421 to get around the closure, as state road detours must be along state-maintained roadways.
Drivers in Northwest Indiana can monitor road closures, road conditions, and traffic alerts at any time via the District’s Facebook page or Twitter feed. Or visit http://www.trafficwise.in.gov for INDOT’s TrafficWise Traveler Information Service.
