Road Conditions remain dangerous Monday as crews continue to work around the clock to try to make roads as safe as possible.
According to Indiana’s Department of Transportation, conditions remain extremely hazardous on all interstates, U.S. highways, and state routes in the INDOT Northwest District. In addition, all counties in our District have declared red travel warnings, advising roads are closed to all but emergency personnel. Heavy snow, blowing and drifting snow and subzero temperatures should be expected on all roadways.
INDOT along with several police departments are urging folks to stay home and stay off the roadways until roadways can be safely cleared.
- I-94, both eastbound and westbound, between the Illinois state line and the U.S. 421 exit (Michigan City)
- I-65, both northbound and southbound, between U.S. 12/20 (Gary) and mile marker 172 (Lafayette)

- State Road 18, between State Road 29 and U.S. 31
- State Road 218, between State Road 25 and State Road 29

INDOT says many other roads are impassable and closed to all traffic, but a complete list is not available due to the massive scale of this severe winter storm and INDOT crews working to clear the way in extreme conditions.
South Bend Public Transportation Corporation (TRANSPO) also announced that all fixed route and ACCESS service will be cancelled Monday due to the severe winter weather and extreme cold.
TRANSPO essential personnel are requested to report to work if possible. TRANSPO says it will continue to monitor weather and road conditions with the goal of restoring safe fixed route and ACCESS service as soon as possible.
