A section of State Road 49 in Porter County will be closed to through traffic for the next two weeks. Starting today, the road will be closed between U.S. 20 and U.S. 12 so crews can dig up and replace a section of roadway.
Drivers can still access the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and South Shore Rail lines by way of U.S. 12. INDOT’s marked detour uses U.S. 20 to State Road 149 to U.S. 12 to get around the closure.
The road is expected to reopen on Wednesday, May 24 at 5 p.m.
