(LAKE CO.) - The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces the emergency closure of I-65 again.

The interstate will be closed, both northbound and southbound, between U.S. 30 (Merrillville) and mile marker 172 (Lafayette).

Deteriorating weather conditions brought upon the closure, including blowing snow with zero visibility, snow drifts, and icy surfaces. This closure is for the safety of motorists. There is no time frame for when I-65 will reopen.

I-94, which closed in tandem with I-65 last night, will remain open.

Drivers in Northwest Indiana can monitor road closures, road conditions, and traffic alerts at any time via the District's social media channels: or Twitter @INDOTNorthwest. Or visit for INDOT's TrafficWise Traveler Information Service.
