INDOT, Police Departments Close Streets and Ramps for Protest Along I-80/94

The Indiana Department of Transportation is alerting motorists to a planned protest along I-80/94 between Calumet Avenue, while ramps at Indianapolis Boulevard and Kennedy Avenue will remain open, conditions permitting. It is unknown at this time when INDOT will then reopen the ramps. As a further precaution, Kennedy Avenue will be closed for both northbound and southbound traffic at the Little Calumet River until further notice.

In addition, the Munster Police Department is advising motorists to a closure on northbound and southbound Calumet Avenue from Ridge Road north to the Little Calumet River Bridge; that area of Calumet Avenue will be closed for public safety due to an expected protest at Calumet Avenue and the Expressway. The closure will remain in effect until further notice. Munster police turn lanes to head north on Calumet Avenue from Ridge Road are also inaccessible, though motorists can head south on Calumet Avenue from Ridge Road. We will bring you any information as to when traffic can resume in the area when it is made available.

The Illinois Department of Transportation is also closing many ramps along the interstate near the state line.
