Shortly around 5:30 Friday afternoon Northwest indiana's Traffic Tip Hotline received a number of calls of traffic slowing in both directions on the Borman (I-80/94) apparently due to drivers being distracted by protesters waving flags and posters on the Calumet avenue bridge over the Borman. INDOT is reporting that all lanes westbound I-80/94 were moving slow from Cline Avenue to Calumet with the eastbound lanes slowing from the state line to the Calumet exit.
One traffic tipster also said that he could one of the protesters were waving yellow flags while others were holding a signs saying to impeach the president.
