Maps and press release from Indiana Department of Transportation
The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is alerting drivers to the closure of the I-94 east ramp to U.S. 20 east (Exit 40A) on Monday, April 3, through early July. This closure is part of an interchange modification safety project, where crews will realign the exit ramp and traffic pattern to U.S. 20, ensuring traffic exiting I-94 will not have to compete for position with oncoming U.S. 20 traffic. This will increase safety for traffic both exiting I-94 and already travelling on U.S. 20.
INDOT is also alerting motorists of lane restrictions that will be in place along U.S. 20/35 near the ramp through the duration of the project.
This project is a $5 million interchange improvement investment that INDOT has awarded to Rieth-Riley Construction. Once the ramp realignment is completed, Rieth-Riley crews will also improve the approach lanes of I-94 leading to exit 40A. INDOT will alert drivers prior to the start of that work and will have details on how traffic will be affected in that area.
If you choose to follow state-designated detours, here are INDOT’s directions: Drivers traveling east on I-94 wishing to exit onto U.S. 20/35 east will be detoured to Exit 40B, the U.S. 20/35 westbound cloverleaf ramp, west on U.S. 20/35 to the I-94 westbound ramp, and west on I-94 to the U.S. 20/35 eastbound ramp.
