Closure Tuesday at SR 2 / US 20 interchange

ROLLING PRAIRIE – The “dogbone” interchange project at State Road 2 and U.S. 20 in La Porte County will have a series of 20-minute closures Tuesday while crews set beams for the newly-constructed bridge. Starting at 7 a.m., crews will have eight 20-minute closures, four each in the westbound and eastbound lanes.

Crews will start on the eastbound side. Traffic queues will be allowed to clear in between closures, but the best way to avoid delays is to avoid the area, according to the Indiana Department of Transportation.


Possible police impersonators on I-94

CHESTERTON – Chesterton Police say they have been receiving questions about a recent Facebook post about a citizen being pulled over on I-94 between Michigan City and Chesterton by two males potentially impersonating police officers.

"We did speak with the citizen about the incident and referred them to the Indiana State Police because the Indiana State Police has jurisdiction of I-94," a statement from CPD said. "The Indiana State Police are actively investigating the incident and will release more information when it become available."

CPD reminds motorists that a police officer must be in a fully marked police vehicle or in an unmarked police vehicle but in full police uniform to initiate a traffic stop. If you are being pulled over and are not sure if the person pulling you over is a police officer you should drive to a well lit public location and call 911 while driving to explain that you are concerned that a person other than a police officer is trying to pull you over. The dispatcher will proved further instructions. For further questions regarding safety and traffic stops, call CPD at 219-926-1136.
