nwi_navigator_1181:
Effective today (9-14-23), INDOT has put a new detour into place for the closed ramp from I-65 north to I-80/94 west ramp in Gary.

Traffic will now be directed to the I-80/94 east C/D ramp, then will use the Central Avenue interchange to “slingshot”  back onto the I-80/94/65 C/D ramp, where traffic will be allowed to enter I-80/94 west.

To facilitate the above movement, the portion of Central Avenue between the two ramps will be closed to through traffic, including all ramp access. Local traffic using Central Avenue will likely be detoured via MLK Drive, 15th Avenue and Clay Street.

I'm getting to the point of agreeing with some of the locals that the project is not needed especially after looking at what they selected.  However, the are does need a bypass of Jasper to the commercial/manufacturing area and a bypass of Huntingburg with a four lane down to I-64.  That has been needed for over 40 years and all that has been done is two sections of super two highways of US 231 to drop off in the business section of Jasper and Huntingburg, and a super two around the south side of Jasper to veer IN 162 from going in town.  These solved minor problems, but all the while the towns have been developing and now some of the land that could have been easily used for the routing is now subdivisions and off limits.

The Ghostbuster:
When the Mid-States Corridor project is eventually constructed, would any of you utilize the improved US 231 corridor on a regular basis?

this only makes sense as a super 2 or divided at grade highway. interstate through here would be insane.
