Beware: Obey road closure at Johnson and 400N or face the consequences

From the LaPorte County Sheriff’s Office: The intersection of Johnson Road and County Road 400 North remains closed due to the ongoing construction project. Do not violate the “ROAD CLOSED” signage by driving around the barricades! Within an hour, afternoon shift deputies stopped approximately 20 vehicles for violating the closure during a 20-minute time period. Deputies will continue to monitor the construction zone, watching for motorists who choose to ignore the road closure signage.

    It would be nice if the drivers using 300 N as an alternative route would obey the speed limit!! It’s 35 mph there. Not 55 or higher. They are going crazy fast like they won’t encounter someone trying to pull out of a driveway or try and cross the street to get their mail. Lost a fawn to a speeder this weekend. Blood all over the road. Slow down people!!

    Can 300 N be monitored as well? Since Aug 19th motorist are using 300 N like a racetrack! The speed limit is only 35mph but people are still flying down the road. There are children who are getting on and off the bus please slow down!!!!

    SuAnn & Concerned I feel your pain. Same scenario different location – no consequences.
    Frustrating to say the least.

    SuAnn Schultz Rd, now that the intersection is open is back to being a SPEEDWAY also. I live right by 600 W where there is a stop sign. How people get to a high rate of speed b4 reaching my house is amazing. Amazingly I saw someone pulled over right in front of my house a few weeks ago. ‘Bout time
